Academic Concentration: 

Oboe; Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies


Originally from the mountains in Colorado, I am an oboe major and gender and sexuality studies minor at New England Conservatory in Boston. I am the president of my school's Student's Advocating for Gender Equity (SAGE) club, where I plan events that showcase womxn and non-binary students at NEC. I also utilize the club as a support group for students and provide resources for those struggling with gender-based issues on and off-campus. I recently became a volunteer with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC), working with its Community Awareness and Prevention Services program. This entails outreach in the Boston area to train and educate various organizations on bystander intervention, consent, and responding to disclosures of sexual violence. In my spare time, I like to drink coffee, read books, listen to music, and spend time with my wonderful friends.
