Leadership and Service
My role as Site Director for the KU-MPH program includes daily operations, recruitment of a highly qualified and diverse student body, coordination and implementation of admissions and enrollment procedures, development of program concentrations and curriculum, program planning and evaluation, and accreditation activities. Additionally, I represent the program to the broader university, surrounding community, and state-wide stakeholders. I work regularly with regional and state public health leaders, especially around issues of public health workforce development, education, and research. I have served on the executive board of the Kansas Public Health Association and on the Kansas Public Health Workforce Coordinating Committee since 2010.
My clinical experience spans a decade in public health, with my particular interest being maternal and child health. I previously held positions in well child, WIC, family planning, and prenatal clinics in two local health departments in Kansas. I am ANCC Board Certified as a Clinical Specialist in Community Health Nursing. Honors include traveling to China in 2006 with People to People International as a Community Health Nurse Delegate, and completion of the Kansas Public Health Leadership Institute in 2008.
