I am an Associate Professor of Public Health and Chair of USCB’s Department of Public Health & Human Services. Previously, I served as program coordinator for USCB’s Public Health and previously Health Promotion programs.

I oversee many student research scholars who have received Magellan Scholar Awards. My research spotlights college student life and programs aimed at reducing alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. Most recently, my research has focused on mechanisms attributing to COVID-19 vaccine uptake and the health and wellness of the LBGT community in and around the low country.

I received a BA at the University of Toledo in 2008 made possible through a four-year Division I Athletic Scholarship in basketball. After earning an advanced degree, I joined Ohio's only accredited college of Public Health at The Ohio State University as a Research Specialist in the Center of Health Outcomes, Policy and Evaluation Services before joining USCB in 2015.

Over the course of my career, I have received over 3 million dollars in funded research grants, 20 professional publications and more than 50 professional presentations. Today, I am actively involved with Student Development, Athletics, Nursing and Human Services at USCB.
