IBM, Global Business Services

Strategy Consultant

As an internal strategy consultant at IBM, I've worked on digital strategy and innovative marketing initiatives for clients all across the business—including Watson & Cloud Platform, Systems hardware, and Services. Outside of my project work, I have honed skills in user-centered design and business strategy.

Barnard College of Columbia University

B.A. Political Science and Economics

At Barnard, I learned so much more than just academics. I learned to be a leader and confident in my delivery.

In the classroom, I discovered my passion for research, and immersed myself in studying policy, politics, and economics. In my extracurricular involvements, I gave 50+ tours to prospective students, served as a Vice President of a community organization governing over 1,000 women, and nerded out as an editor on an academic journal.

I owe so much of who I am today—a poised, confident, and curious leader with a deep passion for female empowerment—to my time at Barnard.


Political Theory and #metoo

I wrote a piece on the #metoo movement and how it relates to the theory of preference falsification. This piece was based off of research I conducted during my senior spring at Barnard, where I examined the relationship between sexual assault movements and social media. ›

Paid Family Leave in CA

I received distinction from the Barnard Political Science Department for my senior research project, where I studied the relationship between CA's first in the country paid family leave legislation and women's labor force participation rates. This work speaks to many of my passions—gender policy, women's economic advancement, and quantitative analysis.

Hobbies & Interests


I strive to end everyday with a few (or more!) pages of a good book. Currently, I am juggling between The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and Nudge by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein. My favorite book ever? It's a tie between the Harry Potter series (duh), and Americanah.



At Barnard, I had the opportunity to study dance in a world-class environment, and made the big leap from figure skating to modern and tap. Now, I love going to performances around the city (Alvin Ailey is an all time favorite!) and fitting in the occasional tap class.
