Welcome to HumBio! I’m looking forward to getting the chance to work with you all this year. The Core was one of my most important experiences at Stanford, and it shaped not only my academic path, but it also gave me an amazing community in HumBio. After taking the Core I chose to concentrate in Global Public Health and had the opportunity to study disparities in health in our country and abroad. Outside of class, I pursued this passion by volunteering at the Pacific Free Clinic in San Jose, going on an alternative spring break trip in central California, and spending a summer in Oaxaca, Mexico. On campus I also loved working at the Bridge and as a HumBio Student Advisor, where I got to meet so many fantastic people. In my free time I like cooking, eating (!), and getting outside. I’m excited for all of you to start on your HumBio path, and can’t wait to get to know you better!
