About Me

#ActuallyAutistic

I'm an undergraduate Psychology student with a passion for disability inclusion & advocacy. In addition to my lived experience as a multiply disabled person, I have about 2.5 years of experience working with a local autism nonprofit. I love health science and have a deep desire for human connection on a smaller, one-on-one scale. Combining all of these passions, I'm aiming for a career as an Occupational or Speech Therapist!

Ideal Workplace Values

Committed to working toward disability inclusion, antiracism, LGBTQ+ equality, intersectional feminism, and environmental sustainability.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I believe that my autism makes me especially passionate and driven when it comes to the things I care about, which means that I'm very self-motivated. I am also highly empathetic and sensitive to others' needs.
