Broadly speaking, my directorial experiences encompass Behavioral Health, as well as Health Education & Communication based initiatives. Moreover, she spearheaded numerous programs involving many community partnerships (e.g.schools, churches, rec centers) in which I have trained staff, students, and residents on evidenced-based community program delivery.

Broadly, her research analyses have examined relational factors between demographic variables (SES, race/ethnicity, etc.) and behavioral health outcomes (e.g. correlation between student demographics on various stress outcomes {e.g. anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, etc.}).
