I have a multidisciplinary perspective that is informed by my time working as a researcher at Johns Hopkins University and the National Institutes of Health, as a Medical Writer in the Pharmaceutical Industry, and as a grant writer for health system clients.
My other professional experiences involved assisting the Deputy Regional Health Secretary (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, New York) implementing nutrition and obesity prevention efforts for the First Lady’s Let’s Move initiatives in New York City (2011), lobbying and writing policy position papers as a Fellow on Capitol Hill (2012), and joining a team of facilitators for a federally funded youth risk-prevention program in New York City (2012-2013).
