I am a Clinical Associate in the Behavioral Health and Wellness Program and a Research Senior Instructor in the Colorado School of Public Health. I am also a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist and member of the International Motivational Interviewing (MI) Network of Trainers. My research interests include applied models of behavior change, motivational interviewing, and coping mechanisms across a wide range of chronic illnesses. I have developed or collaborated on the development of five stress and coping interventions for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers and three MI interventions for obesity prevention and tobacco cessation that have been evaluated in large NIH funded randomized controlled trials. I collaborate with the BHWP team on research, programmatic, curriculum and materials development and provides trainings in MI, stress management, and tobacco cessation.
