Manager, Campus Recruiting & Events,
Oscar Health

Active learner, passionate communicator, and a strong believer in connecting with purpose. My driving curiosity in learning how technology constantly connects people is complimented by my appreciation for the impact of human connection, genuine relationships, and a sincere laugh.

The challenge of building programs, improving processes, and developing talent branding in innovative ways excite me. I’m a big-picture thinker who thrives in collaborative environments, but most of all—I’m fascinated by stories. I flourish best when I’m actively engaging with people and learning how they found or are finding their niche.
