She has worked at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for the past four years as the Reality Check youth coordinator at Tobacco Free Erie Niagara, working with young people to expose the manipulative tactics of the tobacco industry to target youth. She assists and trains middle and high school students to become educated on the issue of tobacco and e-cigarette marketing and to then become activists in their communities. The tobacco industry believes that youth are a vulnerable population but her goal is to show them how wrong they are by empowering young people to speak out and take action. She hopes through her partnership with youth leaders they will one day create a nicotine-free generation.
