Hometown: Palo Alto, California
My research interests include health economics, health care organization, financial management, and health law.
I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2010, and studied business economics and accounting.
I have worked on a voluntary basis for the VA Health Care System, Stanford Hospital, and the American Red Cross for over two years. I have also volunteered at local retirement communities such as the Palo Alto Nursing Center, Lytton Gardens, and Channing House.
Besides that, I have worked as a research assistant on an NSF Career Award project in sociology. I have been a staff writer for U.C. Santa Barbara's WORD magazine. In addition, I have served as a second grade teacher at Ellwood Elementary.
