After earning her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology she worked in a turnaround school as an AmeriCorps Corps Member in Boston. This year of service led her to enroll in graduate school at Columbia University School of Social Work. During one of her graduate field placements she interned at a drop-in center for LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness where she saw how challenging it can be to locate safe and affirming services.
