I am a Ph.D. student in Health and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver. I have a wide array of research interests, but I am most passionate about community-engaged health equity research. Previously, I have worked on multiple behavioral health interventions related to substance use, child abuse, and social determinants of health. I am also a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, having served in Tanzania.
