Noa joined SME in early 2021, bringing years of experience in public health and client management. She attended The Ohio State University where she received her B.S. in Public Health in 2019, focusing on population health and health disparities. Following graduation, Noa signed on to Stanford University’s American Voices Project as a research fellow, collecting health, housing, education, income, and quality of life data from people all over the country. After working in direct service as a case manager in transitional housing, Noa was inspired to come back to the research field as a grant writer. Noa’s extensive background in health advocacy and her client relationships give her a deep understanding of the importance of innovative research.
