My professional interest is in working collaboratively with colleagues, students and community partners in creating a healthy environment on the University of Oregon campus, so the healthy choice is the easy choice.  This is accomplished by looking at our environment and creating policy to impact change.  Tobacco-free 2012 is an example of these efforts.  

I was born in Oregon and do not anticipate living anywhere else on a permanent basis. I love to travel to other countries, cook meals using produce from the Farmer’s Market, share meals with friends, garden, exercise, listen to music, read and play.
