I’m currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. This summer, I’m interning in the City of Douglasville’s Community Development Department, working primarily with the Planning Manager and City Project Manager.
My professional and research interests include:
I’m pleased to announce the publication of “Anti-Displacement Strategies for Equitable Transportation Planning,” a white paper I co-wrote as an intern at Modern Mobility Partners with Candace Foster and Julia Billings, AICP.
I had the incredible opportunity this year to speak about my experience in AmeriCorps on a panel at the APA’s 2021 National Planning Conference. National service was important to me in my personal and professional development, and I enjoy helping others decide if its the right path for them.
I’m very honored to receive the 2021 Glatting Jackson Kercher Anglin Lopez Rinehart Fellowship from the Georgia Tech School of City & Regional Planning for academic performance and leadership potential this year.
As the current President, I’m so excited to announce that the Georgia Tech Student Planning Association, our student engagement and advocacy organization, won the 2021 Outstanding Planning Student Organization (PSO) Award from the American Planning Association!
I’m very proud of everything we’ve done this year, particularly so of how we adapted to virtual programming, fostered new relationships with Atlanta community organizations and Black Lady Planners, created anti-racist planning programming, and expanded our support for international students based on their needs.
