I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology and my Bachelors of Arts degree in Global Health from Arizona State University in 2015.

In 2017 I began a Masters program at ASU in Biology & Society. I was also accepted as a USAID Research and Innovation Fellow, and I am currently working with the Government of Tanzania and HEAL International to complete research in the effects of HIV stigma on access to care in Northern Tanzania.

Research Interests

HIV Stigma and Access to Care in Resource-Limited Settings


I am an MS candidate in Biology & Society and an HIV/AIDS researcher. My main interests are in health and education technology and their applications in emerging markets. I promote stigma-free, inclusive health education and have international community development experience in Asia and Africa. I am an entrepreneur, a technologist, a humanitarian, and an adventure-seeker. 

I currently live in Arusha, Tanzania and serve as the Country Director for HEAL International, a non-profit organization that provides health and empowerment education and health-related services to resource limited communities.
