Biography

         I am passionate about prevention and empowerment. In the role of Associate Professor and Co-Program Lead of Nutrition and Dietetics at SF State, I facilitate learning in nutrition education, metabolism, community nutrition, and research design courses. In the classroom I share findings from food literacy research in food insecure students. Additionally, I include students in community-based research involving overweight youth experiencing stress (divorce, social, physical, psychological) and have begun exploring body stigma in health-related majors.
