Becca received her BA in Communications and Marketing with an emphasis in Public Relations from the University of Houston. Her varied experience includes work in corporate administration, marketing, communications, and internal soft skills training. In 2021, she became a certified trauma-informed Community Health Worker (CHW), which ignited her passion for all things public health. As a community liaison, she was able to conduct health equity outreach for underserved populations with Austin Public Health, as well as manage nonprofit operations for mental health safety net programs with NAMI Texas. In the future, she hopes to earn a MPH with specialization in some facet of sexual and reproductive health.

In her spare time, Becca enjoys yoga, tennis, dabbling in screenwriting, and cuddling with her black cat, Guillermo.

Becca will support Center events and outreach activities, such as our webinar programming, annual events, TX RPC Project Lunch & Learns, continuing education credit coordination, and administrative support to various Center activities.
