About Me

Pronouns: she/her/hers

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Economics (with minors in Math and Political Science) from the Smittcamp Family Honors College at California State University, Fresno, in 2016. While there, I worked in public policy advocacy and developed policy statements for the California State Student Association (CSSA). My honors thesis was on the effects of economic recessions on women's employment and labor force outcomes. After graduation, I moved to Madison, WI, to begin my PhD.

In my free time, you can find me at the dog park or reading in coffeeshops. I teach yoga (RYT200), am a novice oil painter, and am teaching myself to weave. I also offer economics-specific proofreading and editing services for academic articles and dissertations/theses (consultations and rates available via email).
