I am a recent graduate of New York University's Science, Health & Environmental Reporting Program (NYU SHERP).  Previously, I studied professional writing and took premedical courses at Michigan State University (MSU). I was the 2017 recipient of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's Jason Kahn Fellowship in Medical Journalism. I currently serve on the Foundation's Women's Heart Health Initiative's Advisory Committee. My work has taken me to Honduras and Cambodia.  You've seen my work in: The New York Times Daily 360, PBS NewsHour, The Huffington Post, The Root, Psychology Today, TCTMD, and Tonic (Health by Vice), among other publications. Looking ahead, I intend to one day have a career as a medical doctor and as a medical correspondent.
