I graduated with a B.A. in Sociology from Skidmore College in May 2020. At Skidmore, I worked on multiple research projects including a journal article I co-authored with a professor focusing on Tor and the Dark Web, as well as my Senior Thesis, which examines the relationships between mental health and access to natural environments. Through my research projects, as well as my education in Sociology, I learned the importance of using research to improve access to crucial resources and institutions that help communities grow and thrive. I also had the opportunity to intern for Habitat for Humanity, which strengthened my interest in working for a non-profit organization that aims to overcome barriers in the way of essential resources such as housing or healthcare information. I am excited to use my research experience and my love for working with people to help improve the clinical research process, and highlight the patient experience as central to the development of clinical trials.
