I am so excited for the opportunity to begin working with my BTW peers and keep the ball rolling when it comes to promoting health and wellness around our campus, while also being able to learn more about the field of public health. There is so much more we can do to better educate ourselves and others, especially in a college environment. In addition to being a BTW peer educator I also write for the Hoot and I am a member of the women's basketball team.

I am thrilled to be a part of a group that brings passion from multiple areas in order to bring health and wellness on campus. To me, promoting all these layers of wellness are extremely important to acknowledging, valuing, and ensuring space for all identities. Aside from being a part of this lovely community, I am a third year TYP scholar tutoring for a TYP writing course this year. On campus you will most likely find me either on shift or hangout out at the Intercultural Center.
