Jasmine is a Health Outcomes Analyst with RTI Health Advance. 

Jasmine is a recent graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She holds a BA in Psychology. 

During her undergraduate career, Jasmine worked as a research assistant primarily studying schizophrenia and psychosis. The projects she contributed to focused on racial disparities in schizophrenia diagnoses and functional outcomes for Black Americans. She later utilized this knowledge as an intern at Threshold Clubhouse, a community mental health center for adults with severe and persistent mental illness. During her time with Threshold, Jasmine worked with members to nurture relationships and improve their well-being through skill building. She also worked to increase resource availability for addressing member emergencies. 

Jasmine's research and professional experiences have shaped her interests in health equity for underserved populations. Jasmine’s current work focuses on working with payers and providers to solve problems related to health equity and quality improvement.
