I am currently a 6th year PhD candidate
in Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University's Brooks School of Public Policy. Through research, I am dedicated to understanding intersectional minority experiences and the socioeconomic consequences of U.S. migration policy and immigration enforcement.
Prior to my graduate studies, through my role
at the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants,
I worked closely with unaccompanied children,
serving as an interpreter during immigration proceedings and connecting them with pro-bono legal resources. I also served as an AmeriCorps Vista at a food resource center that provides food and nutrition education to low opportunity communities in rural Indiana.
I am a proud O'Neil School alumn (Go Hoosiers!)
small business owner of @tptakespics
and aspiring dog mom!
