Associate Professor, Department of Health and Kinesiology, University of Nebraska Omaha

I am passionate about helping individuals live a physically active lifestyle, starting at birth. I have a particular interest in exploring how to best promote the development of healthy physical activity habits in early childhood by working with children and their caregivers. Through the years I have worked with a variety of community programs and organizations encouraging people to be more active. Additionally, I have collaborated with other researchers to qualitatively assess factors impacting adherence to physical activity-related protocols and programs.
