Academic interests

 As a public health professional, I strive to improve the health of the communities I serve through education, research, outreach, service, and partnerships, all infused with enthusiasm and fun.

I believe the key to help people adopt healthier lifestyles is through personal connections, collaboration, and fostering a sense of play in a supportive and inclusive environment.

I achieve this mission through implementing interventions rooted in the best available evidence, and bolstered by innovatively contributing to current knowledge-base. I endeavor to remain open and welcoming to ensure all stakeholders feel like they belong at the table.

All voices will be equally represented and valued in order to strengthen community capacity to develop sustainable public health programs and effectively engage community members in participatory experiences.

As a dynamic interdisciplinarian, and a professional dot-connector, I will continue to remain curious and compassionate as I attempt to take on our greatest challenges to health.
