About me

Screen Shot 2016-06-10 at 5.50.25 PMI’m a passionate public servant with a focus in public finance. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Masters in Public Administration in May 2017 and also possess a Bachelor’s of Science in Journalism from the University of Kansas.

I am currently a Budget Analyst in the Office of Management and Budget Analysis at the University of Pennsylvania. Previously, I worked in the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Budget and Program Evaluation and the Office of Innovation and Technology. I was selected as a 2016 participant in the Mayor’s Internship Program and a 2016 Public Service and Leadership Fellow at the Fels Institute of Government. I have also worked for the U.S. Department of State, the Kansas Legislature, a gubernatorial campaign, and the Center for American Progress.

I’m honored to have received multiple awards for my commitment to public service including being named as a 2017 recipient of the Institutional Service Award from the Fels Institute of Government and a Women of Distinction by the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity.
