My research interests are concentrated in the areas of postural control and balance in children, women and older adults, obesity in children and service learning and teaching strategies to promote professional development and critical thinking in health care students.
As a board certified geriatric specialist, I focus my clinical skills in the areas of older adults and women's health and fitness.
