I'm a grad student in Health Promotion at Portland State University, and a research assistant for the Institute on Aging. I came to this program with a background in journalism, education, sociolinguistics, and most recently, nutrition and teaching yoga. Originally, my sights were set on working with young women, but as I've learned from my job at the IOA, a multi-generational, life-course perspective is the way to go! My goal now is still to focus on women's empowerment, but with a more integrative, multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary approach.
