"My goal is to elevate an equitable life-course approach to public health through the development of evidence-based programs and initiatives that have a national impact on community health and wellness. I am committed to sitting at any table where I can add value and partnering across-sectors to advance my goal."
Three words to describe me:
innovative, motivated, fun
The best part of my job:
creating policies and solutions to address issues facing large numbers of people, and helping people to live healthy lives
Something that would surprise others about me:
I grew up in a single-parent household and at times food was scarce in my early childhood. This lead me to study food insecurity diet quality during my doctoral studies.
