I have worked in the public health field since 1997, leading child and adolescent health and youth development programs, many of which focused on the intersection of health and education. My professional experience spans the local and national levels, leading teams in designing, implementing, and improving health programs for children and youth. I joined SBHA in 2015, where I currently lead our programs and consulting teams, telehealth work, and the development of new partnerships. My passion is designing and delivering trainings and collaborating directly with the school-based health care field. I am happiest when I am working with communities deep into planning and implementing a school-based health center.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in child development from Tufts University and a Master of Public Health from Emory University. When I am not working, I’m spending time with my two school-aged children, husband, and dog—camping, hiking, swimming, biking, working on puzzles and playing board games.
