Stephanie obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology with a minor in Society and Genetics from UCLA in 2020. Throughout her undergraduate career, Stephanie spent quality time serving marginalized communities in Los Angeles as a member and then board director of the student-led organization Latinxs and Chicanxs for Community Medicine (LLCM). Prior to graduating, Stephanie took an opportunity to work as a pediatric-study research assistant, which helped her understand how qualitative research can inform policy implementations that affect communities of color on a macro scale. As she engaged in sensitive, health-related conversations with participants from underserved communities, Stephanie found a calling that motivated her to pursue a career in Public Health and Policy. Stephanie joins the Easton Center after completing a service term with the United Farm Workers Foundation’s Workers’ Rights team.
