After graduating from Tulane University in 2013 with a B.A. in Economics and International Development, I am spending time in Paraguay with Fundación Paraguaya working in the micro-finance office and at their financially self-sufficient agricultural school for rural entrepreneurs. While living in New Orleans, I worked with Good Work Network, Kiva New Orleans, A’s and Aces, Verti Farms and Sierra Club. I also spent a semester in Buenos Aires, Argentina studying human rights and interning for Transparency International. I am passionate about international development and sustainability using microfinance loans, entrepreneurship education and social impact investments.
