As a fellow, she was placed in the Sinai Health System to assist in research that illuminates the disparities within Chicago neighborhoods, and a local non-profit that connects trauma-informed care to local residents in the southwest communities of Chicago.
Beverly grew up in Davis, CA and attended Princeton University, graduating with a B.A. in Molecular Biology.

In her spare time, Beverly has continued to advocate for those with disabilities through her volunteer work with Best Buddies and Special Olympics for many years. She also enjoys fixing bicycles, after volunteering at bicycle collectives in Chicago, Philadelphia, and now Davis. To relax, Beverly enjoys swimming under the sun, reading, listening to podcasts, doodling, and playing frisbee.
