I recently relocated to Seattle and continue to work in the Human Services division at Mathematica.

"The Fellowship's structure of direct service and project work greatly contributed to how I tackle work in my current role. I'm also very grateful for the cohort model and believe they all pushed me to grow and reflect throughout my two years! I've tried to take this strong commitment to constant reflection in my current role"
