I am conducting my master's research under the direction of Dr. Alison Berg, a UGA Extension Nutrition and Health Specialist. As her graduate research assistant, I help to facilitate evidence-based community programs related to chronic disease prevention and weight management education.
My current research is evaluating the implementation of a statewide Extension program, Cooking for a Lifetime of Cancer Prevention Cooking School, which promotes the importance of cancer screenings and nutrition/lifestyle choices for cancer prevention.
During the fall 2017 semester, I will be a teaching assistant for FDNS 4050, Optimal Nutrition through the Life Span, taught by Dr. Alex Anderson.
I serve on the College of Family and Consumer Sciences Alumni Association Board of Directors and am also the Professional Development Chair for the Northeast Georgia Dietetic Association.
