I am originally from a rural area in Oregon, but I've moved around quite a bit since then, living in New York City, Russia, California, and eastern Idaho. I graduated from Stanford University in June with a Bachelor's degree in Human Biology with a concentration in Global Health and Development of Underserved Communities. I currently work researching cancer. My biggest interests are in health-related issues, but I am also interested in issues involving foreign aid and international development. A member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, I am also very interested in political issues especially affecting American Indians.
