Profile

As a faculty member in the Health and Sport Sciences department at The University of Memphis my professional mission is to foster student learning through actively uniting research, teaching, and service.  As today’s students face an increasingly complex and competitive world, it is imperative that we continue to provide diverse activities, innovative academic programs, and a dynamic mix of learning opportunities to position our students as tomorrow’s leaders. I have provided my students with experiential learning in the development, implementation, and evaluation of health promotion programs by involving them at various levels in my research (as focus group facilitators, health educators, program evaluators, data collectors, authors, presenters) and service initiatives (World Food Day, Arthritis Foundation Walk, health behavior change workshops, community health fairs, walks and runs). I pride myself in having a working partnership with students to promote research and other scholarship that mutually benefits the student, the community, and the university. I also mentor students by being actively involved in their research. This is seen by the above average number of dissertation, thesis, and special project committees on which I serve. As such, my academic career may be described as a continuous interaction among service, research, and teaching with a focus of immersing our students in learning opportunities that prime them to be community leaders. 

As an active member of the Health and Sport Sciences faculty, I continue to be engaged in a research agenda centered on the identification, prevention, and reduction of health risks.  My research  incorporates the design, implementation, and treatment fidelity of community-based health behavior interventions/programs specifically targeting obesity prevention, smoking cessation, and ETS reduction at specific and multiple socio-ecologic levels. My research also involves identifying mediating and moderating variables that are intertwined in making successful health behavior changes.
