As a biomedical engineering student, she participated in a medical hackathon and developed a company for a product called “Takin’ it Easy”, a user-friendly, cost-effective automated pill dispenser for those who require regular care. She and her team won the runner-up Tech Venture in the GWU competition, and third place at the 2018 Pitch George competition.
She served as Director of the George Hacks program at GWU from 2018-20 (now officially a nonprofit organization), and is now an R&D Engineer Intern at Medtronic pursuing interests in medical devices and human-centered design.
