Personal Statement:

In my faculty position at Tulane, I am committed to bringing the "real world" into the classroom, and offer students practical applications to theoretical and academic concepts and competencies.

I began my public health career at Planned Parenthood of Louisiana, where I functioned in several roles, including as Director of Clinical Services and as Director of Operations. In 1993, I repositioned myself to make more use of my health communication/education training and began a joint appointment working with the Global Community Health & Behavioral Sciences Department here at Tulane and with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, Office of Public Health, Bureau of Family Health (BFH). At the BFH, I serve in a key leadership position as the Director of the Communications, Innovation and Action team, and am responsible for developing and managing the BFH's health communication/education activities, partnerships and community networks, best practice health promotion strategies, and system level actions. Additional areas of focus include ensuring effective translation of content expertise and epidemiological data for the development of key program publications and communication tools. I work to assure that intervention strategies are robust and effectively translate public health and behavior change theories into practice. My role is the support the BFH as a quality improvement engine for promoting health of children, adolescents, women and families in Louisiana.
