During her summer internship with BluePath Health (BPH), she served as a policy analyst for client engagements across both private and public sectors. For a healthcare software startup, she conducted a funding research and strategy analysis that identified key federal and state grant opportunities in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

For these projects, her creative problem-solving, communication, and analytical skills were significant additions to the BPH team.
