• About Me

    I am a project manager, researcher, and activist currently based in New York City. I am passionate about the intersection between health policy, bioethics, and urban advocacy.

     

    Ultimately, I want to explore and evaluate policy solutions to vexing and emerging social issues and do work that is worthwhile.

     

    Whenever I have the chance, I also like to spend time as an amateur collage artist, DJ, and documentary filmmaker. I believe in taking risks, relentlessly asking questions, and always sending paper thank you notes.

  • Experience

    I want to create cutting-edge solutions for the healthcare industry and do work that is worthwhile.

    Elation Health

    Specialist | Jun. 2016 - Present

    San Francisco, CA

     

    At Elation Health, I’ve played an impactful role in helping independent physicians strengthen the patient-physician relationship by creating resources that can help them save time and spend more time with patients. In particular, I helped launch Elation’s Resource Center, which includes important information on health policies like MACRA and CPC+, as healthcare moves toward value-based care. I’ve also project managed multiple other projects and authored an industry-leading playbook for Direct Care physicians.

    Bloom Technologies

    While at Bloom, I had the unique opportunity to carve a path for Bloom's marketing efforts.

    DoctorBase (Acquired by Kareo)

    Marketing Intern | Jul. 2014 - Sept. 2014

    San Francisco, CA

     

    At DoctorBase, I discovered my passion for emerging health technologies and the impacts they can have on people's lives. I was afforded the opportunity to work alongside the CEO and other executives to learn what it takes to market a digital health product first-hand. I also got a chance to learn more about SEO after working to optimize keywords for the Ask DoctorBase feature.

     

  • Education

    Curiosity killed the Cat, not the Journalist.

    University of California, San Francisco

    MS | Health Policy and Law

    San Francisco, CA

     

    Healthcare is in the midst of rapid transformation and in response UCSF in partnership with the UC Hastings College of The Law has launched an innovative new Master's program of which I am a part of its first cohort.

     

    This program interweaves the best elements of health policy and legal education – spanning across economics, finance, policy analysis and legal reform. In preparation to serve as an industry leader, I've gotten the chance to work with researchers and scholars that are just as passionate as I am to solve policy problems and practical dilemmas that our health care system faces each day.

    Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo

    BS | Science, Technology, & Society, Journalism, Public Relations 

    San Luis Obispo, CA

     

    Cal Poly is a distinctive university that fosters a unique "Learn By Doing" approach which encourages students to solve real-world problems by combining classroom theory with experiential laboratory exercise.


    As a cutting-edge university, Cal Poly is one of the few institutions that offers an interdisciplinary Science, Technology, and Society (STS) program which has given me a broad understanding of the technical and social dimensions of science and technology.
