Professional Summary

I arrived at EMU in 2002. My research interest focus largely upon youth risk behaviors, specifically those related to tattooing and body piercing, obesity, and substance abuse. Much of my professional time is spent assisting local school districts with health-and-wellness-related needs. Much of this work involves my students.

In 2011, I was honored to receive the Everett L. Marshall Fellow Award for Excellence in Teaching from the College of Health and Human Services.
