I was born and raised in Vancouver, Washington and grew up among the trees, fostering a unique sense of peace within myself that I can only find in nature. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Law, Societies and Justice and Political Science from the University of Washington, and throughout college I developed a fierce passion for social and environmental justice, as well as long political discussions. I love learning, researching, and writing; my lifelong goal is to continue learning wherever I go.
I currently work as an office assistant at a law firm, and was initially expecting to go to law school straight out of undergrad, but with a change of plans I found myself being a part of the 2019 IMBY Mentor team. I am excited to be a part of a one-of-a-kind program that will not only allow me to learn and grow, but also allow students to create something beautiful, and find their place in a park. My hobbies include playing soccer, hiking, playing guitar, hunting down local live music, and finding new places to hang up my hammock.
