Now I am leading the Operations team working alongside clinicians to tech empower convenient, continuous care that is twice as good for half the cost.

    Samsung Research America Intern

    This summer I was fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the complex world of battery research. As the only software engineer on the team, I was responsible for creating a platform to display data and perform digital experiments. My days were filled with crash courses on crystallography and exploring WebGL.

    Boston University

    Entering Boston University with a two year break from academia gave me the freedom and clarity to pursue my interests with no hinderance. Graduated Magna Cum Laude with a computer science and international relations double major and a passion to promote women in tech.

  • generation peace academy


    Generation Peace Academy

    GPA taught me resilience and perseverance. Fundraising on the streets to fund our tsunami relief efforts in Japan required trudging through rejections and finding gratitude in the mundane. Bringing joy to those less fortunate is the reason I continue to volunteer.

    Illinois Math and Science Academy

    I am incredibly grateful to be a part of the IMSA community and my first three years living away from home. This is where I learned to love dance, became involved in leadership development, and fell in love with philosophy. IMSA was the first place to encourage me to embrace my nerdiness.
