I completed my BA in Economics at UMass Amherst last August in order to enroll in the MS3 program fall 2019. While at UMass, I’ve worked anywhere from a local acupuncture clinic to the Student Government Association as Secretary of Sustainability. I’ve been able to curate my studies, work and extracurriculars to include sustainability in its many forms. Through my internship at the UMass Clean Energy Extension and MS3 coursework, I’ve discovered my passion for data analytics and research which I’ll pursue beyond this program. I love to garden and read although I’m still working on doing them simultaneously, and I have the ambitious goal of becoming fluent in Spanish. I’m so excited to continue my studies of economic and policy driven solutions to our current social, economic and environmental climate.
