.... it's complicated

Bio: I grew up on the move and have had the pleasure of calling many places "home" across the US, as well as time overseas. I earned my BA in International Relations at the University of Delaware, where I enjoyed racing crew and triathlons, playing baritone in the marching band, and studying Spanish, Mandarin, and Portuguese.

After a quick stint working in the private sector and as a freelance photographer, I joined the Peace Corps to support community health capacity building in northern Mozambique. Shortly after, I worked for USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service on trade policy in East and West Africa before joining Evans for my MPA. I am a concurrent MPH student with the Department of Global Health, where I hope to continue my research on food and nutrition security and HIV treatment outcomes.
Outside of work and school, I enjoy escaping Seattle for hiking and skiing, playing intramural sports, and tasting some of Washington's delicious beer and wine.

Why did you choose Evans?: I chose Evans because I was attracted to the quantitative rigor, the number of amazing professors with experience in food and agriculture in East Africa, and its proximity to several global development organizations that I am interested in working for.
