Hometown: Sarasota, Florida
I am interested in long-term care, quality of care, healthcare organizations and policy.
I completed a Bachelor of Health Science at the University of Florida. Alongside my B.H.S., I also completed upper level courses in the sciences and Russian Culture.
I have been a volunteer with several organizations, such as Campus Kitchens and the Community Weatherization Coalition. These organizations concentrated on helping citizens of the Gainesville community who are in need. I have also been a research assistant for the Village Interactive Training and Learning Study, which aimed to correlate elderly physical activity with increased memory. I also assisted in a study examining the effects of androgens on female Gambusia fish.
