I am interested in working with unintentional injury prevention in children because I strongly believe that prevention is key. I think Safe Kids Georgia is a great organization that will allow me to expand my knowledge on ways to prevent injuries. This summer I will be helping out the Safe Kids team compute data, write blog posts, represent Safe Kids at events and many more. I am particularly excited about learning grant writing and the marketing aspect of Safe Kids. I look forward to growing this summer and becoming a part of the Safe Kids Georgia team!

I currently work for the operations of the Trauma Program at CHOA. I will be helping the Trauma Program prepare for Pediatric Trauma Center verification by the American College of Surgeons. Overall, I am excited to be working at Safe Kids this summer because I truly believe in their mission to decrease injuries and tragedies faced by children, especially when they could be prevented. I look forward to learning more through this experience and really being part of the team. I believe what we do makes an ultimate difference in children’s lives and it is important to do what we can to continue to keep our future generations safe!

Junior, University of Georgia, Marketing & International Business, May 2020
I have grown up in a family dedicated to child safety so working at Safe Kids was a great fit for me! No family should have to go through the loss of a child from a preventable injury. I truly believe communicating best practices and safety tips goes a very long way in keeping kids safe! I am currently assisting with current and future Safe Kids marketing endeavors.
Interests: reading, cooking, traveling, and volleyball
