Junior CSCG Fellow
I want to combine my passions for science, advocacy, and social justice to educate and provide care for underserved women in both rural and urban areas of America. After Ursinus, I plan to become an OB/GYN so I can inform women of their reproductive health rights and hopefully aid them in life-changing decisions.
My Majors and Minors
I conduct research in Dr. Rebecca Roberts’ Lab. We observe the effects of bisphenols commonly found in plastics on breast cancer tissue cells.
My Favorite CSCG Events
My CSCG Courses

My CSCG Civic Internship
I completed a month-long internship, funded by the CSCG, at a medical clinic in Las Salinas, Nicaragua in the summer of 2016 with the FIMRC organization. As an intern, I had the opportunity to shadow the clinic’s Pediatrician and OB/GYN, as well as go on direct prental, diabetic, and physical therapy visits. Alongside shadowing and observing, I also had the opportunity to practice taking vitals on patients and interacting with children. Abby, Ashley, and I also worked on a side project teaching PE classes and miniature health lessons to students at local elementary and middle schools.
