About

Biography

I am bringing a combination of real-world experiences and intersectional academic interests to my graduate studies at CSU. Growing up in Chicago influenced my desire to study racial inequality and environmental sustainability in college. After my undergraduate studies I worked at a food bank in Seattle. This informed my understanding of food access, poverty, and direct service with marginalized communities. I then served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Paraguay working on environmental education and reforestation efforts. I also taught sex education and worked with young women to develop leadership skills and career preparedness. I am passionate about dismantling systemic oppression and environmental degradation. I am excited to build community in Fort Collins, especially around my hobbies: gardening, hiking, and ceramics. I love discussing travel, composting and drag.
