Tobacco Free Rhode Island

As the daughter of a heavy smoker and the granddaughter of someone with very weak lungs genetically, it was never a hard decision to not start using tobacco. The only hard part was finding enough time in my fast-paced New England life to advocate and educate as much as I could.

My journey began my freshman year of high school and is still going strong while in college. I started off in my school’s Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) chapter and quickly branched out to several other relating organizations, one being Tobacco Free Rhode Island (TFRI). After partnering with all of them, I was able to not only spread awareness about vaping throughout my town’s middle and high school, but on a state and federal level as well. Although I connected with many clubs, coalitions, and organizations, TFRI was where my love for prevention found a home.

Public health is my passion; taking down Big Tobacco fuels me; engaging the community enriches my life; and saving just one person through cessation makes it all worth it.
