Student Health Services
Research/Career Interests: 

I currently see patients at Dixon Rec Center and enjoy working with clinical nutrition problems, such as hyperlipidemia and diabetes. Since the focus of my MPH is health promotion, I also enjoy seeing students who want help with general healthy eating. I am passionate about preventing chronic disease and it's exciting to have the opportunity to introduce students to healthy habits that will not only help them now but for decades to come.

Beyond OSU
Personal Interests: 

I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, running, and paddle boarding (when it's warm!) I am also very involved with my church, serve as an advisor for the sorority I was in during my undergraduate years, and am a board member for the Oregon Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
