CURRICULUM VITAE

I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Health Management and Systems Sciences with an emphasis in Social Policy at University of Louisville. I received a MSEd at The City College of New York, and a BA at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  

As an instructor in the Department of Health Promotion and Behavioral Science, I teach Health Equity, Public Health Intervention Principles & Strategies at the undergraduate level; in Summer 2022 I will begin teaching pedagogy at the doctoral level.

My research interests include technology-delivered mental/emotional health interventions, mindfulness/meditation, trauma/toxic stress, comprehensive sexuality education as it relates to violence prevention/development of healthy relationships, with a focus on high-risk youth and young adult populations.

On the personal front, I am honored to spend my life with a loving partner, a vibrant baby daughter, a Labrador named Dan Quayle, and a healthy network of family and friends. I also enjoy exploring cooking using locally sourced produce, creating beauty in shared spaces, being physically active and traveling near and far whenever possible.
