I am an inquisitive and multi-disciplinary leader with 9+ years of experience in health and social science research delivering impactful and financially-savvy outcomes. I am an empathetic and human-centered ethnographer committed to practicing equitable, efficient, and collaborative approaches with cross-functional teams to achieve effective and sustainable outputs.
At UNC, my doctoral research collaborates with a local community garden to address questions on how farmworkers and their families navigate food apartheid in Immokalee, Florida. Specifically, I focus on the ways farmworkers and their families practice food sharing as a form of care.
This experience has raised my curiousity on how health technologies have the potential to improve access to health and social services for underserved populations living in rural areas. For this reason, I am interested in applying my ethnographic and qualitative skills to a career in health and/or civic tech.
