Native Michigander and fresh transplant to the Pittsburgh area. I did my undergraduate degrees in French Linguistics/Civilization and Biomedical Science at Grand Valley State University and attended medical school at Michigan State University (both in my hometown of Grand Rapids). Along the way I picked up my MSc in Global Health and Social Justice at King’s College London (where I also picked up my partner Alex lol). My primary areas of focus are in global/public health and underserved medicine, with specific interests in reproductive health justice, LGBTQ+ health, refugee/immigrant/asylum seeker health and abolition medicine.
In my spare time I am a big sister, my mom’s 4th favourite child (out of 4…so not too shabby), below average painter, unnecessarily loud singer, and pop culture enthusiast.
