I am delighted to be joining the Sarnoff Center for Jewish Genetics as a Community Health Educator! I am originally from New York City and later moved to Buffalo, NY where I studied psychology and counseling services at SUNY-Buffalo. Upon completion of my BA, I relocated to Chicago to pursue a Master of Public Health with a concentration in Community Health Sciences-Maternal and Child Health. In the past, I aided in projects that ranged across a variety of topics, such as prenatal substance exposure, intimate partner violence, implementation science, and LGBTQ student health. I am thrilled to be able to apply my interdisciplinary background in the Chicagoland Jewish community, which has become my “home away from home.” Aside from my professional endeavors, I love to read, listen to podcasts, try new restaurants, travel abroad, and spend time with family and friends.
