About Me

As a doctorally prepared public health nurse and nurse practitioner, I am passionate about developing and evaluating programs that can enhance the care of diverse vulnerable populations. I have worked closely with Academic-Community partnerships in assessing and refining existing strategies to improve recruitment efforts of health professionals in underserved areas, and thus access to care in these areas as well. I hope to continue my work in collaborative community-based partnerships to bridge health disparities and improve the care of vulnerable populations.
