Throughout my educational and professional careers, I have centered the pursuits of social justice and equity. Prior to my time at Informing Change, I worked as a research assistant in psychology labs where I contributed to research on social inequality and marginalized groups. These experiences made me a strong believer that data can shed light on the intricacies of the human experience and, therefore, practical solutions to social issues.
What drew me to Informing Change is the team’s dedication to supporting communities on their journeys to positive change through methods of inclusive and participatory research that engage and center community members. As a Research Assistant, I support project teams with organization, data collection and analysis, and client collaboration. It excites me to be a part of this process of social change and to work with such a diverse array of motivated and compassionate individuals.
In my spare time, you can find me outside enjoying nature or indulging my creative side by painting and drawing!
