BA Anthropology, University of South Florida, 2018

Professional Background

Prior to attending the University of North Carolina and during my time as an undergraduate at the University of South Florida, I was involved in several research projects in the Tampa Bay region of Florida related to Food Insecurity. I plan to continue my research into this area, as well it’s broader implications of health disparities in the United States and the social determinants of health, specifically within the context of women’s reproductive health and wellbeing.

Entered Program in Fall 2019
