Peer Advisor Profiles

Hello! I'm a senior in Conservation and Resource Studies and my Area of Interest is Environmental Pollution and Human Health. I've been involved in various environmental justice projects around the Bay Area and hope to continue my education later on in the environmental health field. Last summer I had the wonderful opportunity to do an internship for the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics (AOEC) and worked with the Labor and Occupational Health Program (LOHP) of UC Berkeley in collaboration with UNITE HERE.

I've also been involved in a cappella, intramural basketball, and was a former CalSO counselor in 2006.

I'm not sure what I'm doing after college. Everything is still up in the air. Maybe a job. Maybe volunteering. Maybe some traveling. Perhaps all three. I'm definitely interested in pursuing graduate education later on. For now I'm interested in taking a break after I graduate.
