Biography

Hello! I am so excited to serve as one of the Directors of Educational Outreach, and I cannot wait to work on this year’s community initiatives!

I am a fourth-year biology major on the pre-medical track with minors in health disparities and nutritional sciences. I conduct research at the UF College of Medicine on the factors that contribute to the development of obesity, with a focus in adolescents and underrepresented populations.

I joined CURBS my freshman year, and have been fortunate to help inspire students about science! Teaching youth and performing exciting experiments has been a major highlight of my undergraduate career. We’re working on several new opportunities, and I greatly look forward to expanding our high school outreach.
