Although they were born in NYC, they spent most of their childhood growing up in Springfield, VA. They studied Cell and Molecular Biology at Brown University and graduated in 2016 with honors.

They took then two gap years to conduct basic sciences research on the effects of Mullerian Inhibiting Substance (MIS) on sexual development and contraception in women undergoing ovotoxic chemotherapy. Within medicine, they are most interested addressing health disparities, diversity recruitment, and gender affirming care and hope to become a Gender Affirming Surgeon. Currently, they are conducting community qualitative research on best healthcare practices and health-oriented research needs for Intersex people as part of a novel team coined the Intersex Research Coalition (IRC).
