Peer Health Educator

Hi there! My name is Maddy and I use she/her pronouns. I’m a sophomore here at the University of Washington planning to study biology with a minor in global health and I am so excited to continue learning and challenging myself academically as I continue to pursue my degree. Outside of school I enjoy hiking and camping, as well as spending time with family and friends whenever possible!

This will be my first year as a peer health educator and one of the many reasons why I was so drawn to this role is because of the strong student-led aspect of the education that is being done. I value the idea of mentorship and growing alongside people, so I hope to not only help teach and bring awareness to topics that need to be addressed but also be a student myself throughout my time, as there is no right or wrong way to change or learn. I want to give all huskies the tools they need to feel comfortable living on campus and being a young adult, as well as aid them in figuring out healthy ways to cope and navigate new lifestyles that come with the transition to college and the years during!
