researchers and racial and ethnic communities to encourage greater collaboration and involvement in public health research with the goal of eliminating health disparities.   

Her role at CBH centers on program development for several flagship programs, as well as creating an awareness of CBH and its educational and creative opportunities for all four CU campuses and the communities they serve.  She also works to develop and maintain productive relationships between the Center and a variety of external groups and individuals within the local community and state of Colorado.  A former middle school English Language Arts teacher and film festival organizer, she enjoys representing the humanities side of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities.
