  • Research Interests: I’m interested in a number of different things related to my previous and current experience and knowledge base. I’d like study awareness-based prevention methods for sexual violence, but I am also interested in women’s growing role in leadership, the gender differences in leadership qualities, and the efficacy of those differences respectively.
  • Education: 2015 B.S. in Nutritional Sciences from Rutgers-New Brunswick



I’ve spent the past few years heavily involved in sexual violence prevention and advocacy and in movements for reproductive rights. Currently, I am the youngest candidate in New Jersey for State Legislature running for Assembly in the 13th Legislative District.
