I received my Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and International Development Studies for University of California Los Angeles. As a student I worked in an on-campus tutoring lab working in history, social sciences, and study skills . After college I joined the Peace Corps in Guatemala and worked as a health education volunteer. I trained community health promoters, worked with local health providers, and taught workshops and camps for community youth. Working with so many different ages and education levels gave me invaluable experience in interactive teaching methods and catering to varied learning styles. After Peace Corps I also spent a year teaching English at an urban elementary schools in Madrid, Spain. Most recently I completed my Master of Public Health at Columbia University where I focused on sexual and reproductive health and humanitarian aid. As a graduate student I worked as a teaching assistant for several courses including global health and development, qualitative research methods, and program planning and evaluation.
