Associate Professor, Public Health Sciences
Health Sciences Campus
I am a nutritionist. My research focuses on understanding and improving diet quality in young African-American women through culturally tailored interventions. My broader research interests include structural and social determinants of diet and diet-related disease in this population. I am excited and grateful that I will be completing my first year as a full-time faculty in the department of Public Health Science. I enjoy hiking, Zumba, and cooking – particularly vegan dishes.

Health promotion research, specifically in underserved populations like the African-American community, is important to adding diverse perspectives to current and future public health literature.
