Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a senior studying English and History with special love for creative writing, feminist studies, and peer mediation. When not reading poetry or doing dishes at my co-op, I can usually be found at Stanford's Sexual Health Peer Resource Center, a student-run wellness center where I am General Manager. I devote much of my time and energy at Stanford to thinking about, discussing, and trying to build healthy interpersonal habits in my personal relationships and in my communities. I have experience facilitating workshops on healthy relationships and sexuality at the high school and college level, and I'm excited to talk about the invaluable (and often undiscussed) practices of learning about personal boundaries, caring for others, and communicating in healthy ways.
