Biographical Statement:

My research interests surround the development of effective community-based programs to reduce health disparities- particularly among children and their families. I am also interested in the influence food and built environments have on people's health and how environmental changes can impact the success of health interventions in underserved communities.  

 
Current Research Activities:

As part of the Seguin lab, my current research is focused on capacity building and civic engagement approaches for improving eating and physical activity environments in rural areas. I am also involved in a project to develop rural built environment assessment tools for dissemination in communities.
