Prior to Ross, I worked in HIV research and healthcare tech. During that time, I learned so much about social determinants of health, and I became determined to pivot careers into sustainability and food systems. I'm a proud Erber, who has really made the graduate school experience her own. In the last two years, I've worked on many sustainability projects across the food value chain through various Ross action-based learning experiences like MAP, Dow Sustainability Fellows, and Open Road. After Ross, I'm hoping to work to advance a more diverse, equitable, and just world. I'm very indebted to the many Rossers who chatted with me about their experiences, and I'm excited to pay it forward. Feel free to reach out to me about food, sustainability, and financing your graduate studies. As a first generation college student, I'm also happy to chat about navigating a dual degree.
