Welcome to the HumBio Core! I am so excited to meet, learn from and grow with each of you and am even more excited for you to start a rewarding journey through the Core. As a student in the Core, my CAs, along with the faculty, encouraged us to explore the huge breadth of the HumBio major in a way that celebrated all of our individual interests. After a professional ballet career, I chose my concentration as “Multidisciplinary Approaches to Human Performance” — looking at the complex factors at play in a person’s life and how they impact health and performance. This interdisciplinary approach shaped my own career interests and I hope that your journey through the Core will allow you to discover your passions as well. Outside of HumBio, I was a part of Cardinal Ballet Company, Dance the Bay at Stanford, StEMS, and a Research Assistant at the Stanford Neuroscience and Pain Lab. I also love all things Disney, eating food, dancing, and listening to podcasts! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to talk anything HumBio, Stanford, or anything else. I can’t wait to meet you!
