Her programming will complement the vision of the UC Davis World Food Center by creating community-supported solutions to food security issues and by evaluating, assessing and implementing strategic interventions among the undergraduate and graduate student populations.

In support of this work, she has been given the newly created title, nutrition and food access student assistant. As a GFI ambassador, she also will share her voice and report on UC Davis student engagement activities and connect with other GFI student leaders.
