She received her MBA from UC Berkeley and focuses her career on dismantling systemic injustice. Early in 2018, she traveled to Sierra Leone with One World Women’s Health to provide doula/maternal healthcare and media support alongside an integrated ObGyn team of doctors and nurses. She is inspired by her mother who emigrated from Communist Romania in 1961 with her parents who survived Nazi-Occupied Hungary and Auschwitz/various labor and concentration camps.
