Policy and Research Assistant
I provide research assistance to the policy team on a variety of issues. Most often, I work with other members of the team to accomplish projects that relate to immigration, income, and food security.
I do this work because
I am continuously inspired by the resilient families and communities that persist despite the inequities that are deeply embedded in our society.
I am most proud of
Creating a brief that provides a series of recommendations for direct service providers and policymakers to increase access to nutritious and culturally appropriate foods for immigrant and mixed-status families.

When the day is done
I prefer to go on a run, play with my housemate’s Chiweenies, or plan my next travel adventure!
