Life's Philosophy: "Take Action! An inch of movement will bring you closer to your goals than a mile of intention" (Dr. Steve Maraboli). I enjoy traveling and spending time with family. I have been teaching at the collegiate level since 2008. In addition, I have approximately five years of experience as a health educator for a nursing home and experience working with the Coordinated School Health Program. My dissertation focused on "Preventing Falls Among the Elderly within Nursing Homes". I have a strong desire and passion to continue to investigate this topic and also develop innovative solutions to improve fall reduction rates.
