After watching my dad fight multiple cancer battles when I was a teenager, I knew I wanted to help advance research. But I was also dead set on being a writer. In college, I learned I could do both through a writing internship at Fred Hutch.

I started my career as a journalism fellow in Indonesia, where I learned how to chase down compelling stories. Then I honed my strategy skills at a digital agency.

I joined Message Lab in 2018. Now I have the privilege of helping clients build strategies and create engaging stories around the next generation of breakthroughs — and the people they impact.

In 2021, I earned my Master of Communication in Digital Media degree, focused on storytelling and content strategy, from the University of Washington. Outside of work, you’ll find me hiking, snowboarding and outrigger canoe paddling.
