My research interests are primarily in program development, implementation, and evaluation, particularly as it relates to child and adolescent health. I joined the Center for American Indian Health in 2007 as a Health Education Specialist focusing on curriculum development. Since joining the Center, I have worked on a number of programs covering topics such as child development and parenting, nutrition, substance abuse, and youth suicide prevention.
