Before joining CISCRP, I worked as a seasonal, part-time employee for 2 consecutive summers at The Transportation’s Children Center in Boston. I started as a volunteer at TCC in 2014, helping in toddler and pre-school classrooms because of my love for children. After receiving my Bachelor’s of Social Work degree from Elms College in May 2018, I continued working as a full-time teacher’s assistant in the toddler classroom. In November 2018, I transitioned to the newly opened infant room as an EEC certified infant/toddler teacher where I enjoyed spending time with infants in my care and connecting with team members and families.
In the past, I’ve enjoyed my role as a residential counselor for Behavioral Health Network in the Crisis Behavioral Acute Treatment program helping adolescents with behavioral and mental health issues transition back into the community. I also enjoyed interning at the Court Service Center in Springfield, MA, assisting litigants who could not afford lawyers. I am passionate about serving and creating positive change in underrepresented communities. I believe in dignity, respect, fair and equal access to resources and necessities as basic human rights.
I am so excited to learn from a variety of patient experiences, and to help educate communities about the importance of clinical research trials through my career at CISCRP!
