Vanessa Ochavillo is interested in health, broadly understood. As a 2017 human biology undergraduate at Stanford University, she studied the intersection of health with labor and immigration. Her training in community-based research, oral history and communications convinced her of the importance of quality research and storytelling in inspiring community and civic engagement. She is eager to expand her public health reporting with data and multimedia. She has written for the Pacific Daily News, the Stanford Daily and the Sacramento Bee.
