WAMM'S approach to development is innovative and immersive. I wanted to be involved in work creating an actual impact in local West African communities.

About Me


During my undergraduate experience at the University of Maryland I was involved with my campus's Engineers Without Borders group, where I developed a passion for nutrition development. Together with teams of students, we designed and implemented engineering development solutions in Burkina Faso, Peru, and Brazil. In my spare time I volunteered with an organization addressing national hunger issues and worked as a peer mentor. After graduating, I started on the track to become a Registered Dietitian, completing supervised practice requirements in clinical and community settings.
