I am a doctoral student in Global Health Sciences at UCSF.
I consider myself a public health educator, practitioner, and researcher. My most recent opportunities involved developing and teaching public health courses at the University of Minnesota, School of Public Health as well as collaborating with displaced and migrant communities to reduce health disparities in Minnesota at WellShare International. Grateful for experiences across academic institutions, government agencies, community health centers, and nonprofits in the United States, Sierra Leone, and Ethiopia,
I plan to remain at the intersections of academia, community partnership, and research. I desire to engage in inquiry and praxis that advances health equity and agency—particularly among people with the capacity for pregnancy. Drawing inspiration from intersectional feminism and decolonization, my primary research interests include global reproductive health, wellness, and justice.
