As Chief of Staff of the Undergraduate Fellows, she is excited to be a part of the mediation between students and faculty and to contribute to a learner-centered environment at USC.
In addition to her participation in CET, Kate has served as president of Interaxon Educational Outreach and Chief Operating Officer of Kappa Alpha Theta fraternity. She is a Trustee Scholar and has received several distinctions during her time at USC, including Dean's List, Phi Beta Kappa, a Summer Undergraduate Research Fund grant for her anthropology research in Brazil, two Provost Fellowships and the Rose Hills Fellowship for her neuroscience research at Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute. In her free time, she enjoys teaching yoga, volunteering in local schools, and finding new Thai restaurants. After graduation, she hopes to complete a dual MD/MPH degree program and combine medical practice with work in health policy.
