Former Internal Vice President
Former Innovation Team Director (Research)
Former Social Director
I graduated with a neuroscience major from Hercules, California in the Bay Area. I joined HAND because it gave me the opportunity a part of community that shared my passions for neuroscience and education. As Internal Vice President, I furthered my mission to raise awareness about neurological diseases and connected individuals with professionals in neuroscience fields.
Jane majored in neuroscience with a minor in public affairs. Her favorite thing to do growing up was reading books, and she loved how the characters and stories transported her mind to different worlds. This piqued her interest in thinking, consciousness, and imagination. After interning at a Boston University research lab and joining a neurobiology lab at UCLA, she realized that she wanted to study neuroscience because it uses biology, physiology, and psychology to generate a more concrete understanding of neural circuits underlying our thought processes. She enjoyed working with HAND members as one of the innovation team directors. Outside of HAND, she enjoyed playing volleyball, lifting weights, and trying to make edm.
Crystal majored in Psychobiology and served as the Social Director for HAND. "Thank you for such a wonderful experience, truly grateful for all the wonderful connections I’ve made here. Wishing the next gen members best of luck - hope to see istopshaking in the market one day soon :)”
