  • Programming and Outreach Assistant
  • I'm majoring in Biomedical Science with a Minor in Gender and Women’s Studies, as well as pursuing the Feminist Leadership certification. I’m working at the Women’s Center because I want the platform to be able to help advocate for equality, resource access, and positive changes at SCSU. Two fun facts about me is that I am on the SCSU Women’s Swim and Dive Team and I helped to found the Period Organization on campus.
