Director of External Diversity & Inclusion (she/her)


I am a fourth year pursuing a Bachelor of Public Health degree with a Certificate in Arts in Medicine. I currently research with tissue chips for progressive muscle disorder treatment in the UF Department of Biomedical Engineering with the Schmidt Lab.

I have been involved with CURBS since my Freshman year and have served on the Educational Outreach, Campus Outreach, Public Relations, and Peer Advising committees. I am grateful to have received support through numerous opportunities offered by the Center of Undergraduate Research, including the University Scholars Program (USP) and the Summer Undergraduate International Research Program (SUIRP).

At UF, I am involved with Dream Team, Period Movement, and the Community Health Oriented Mentorship Program (CHOMP). In my free time, I enjoy drawing, painting, and baking. In my last year in CURBS and at UF, I hope to bring exciting new collaborations and discussions to the forefront of CURBS and student research.
