A social scientist and health education specialist, my research, teaching and praxis span over 20 years and are greatly influenced by Paulo Freire’s critical pedagogy, Uri Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model, and bell hooks’ writings on radical education and transnational feminist. My work with and in communities is rooted in principles of community-based participatory research and the influence of socio-ecological factors on health and health disparities. Prior to my life in the academy, I worked across public sectors, in secondary education, community health, and regulatory (corporate) affairs. In higher education, I have developed and led accredited undergraduate and graduate health-related programs as well as directed grant-funded community health education and outreach programs primarily for underserved and marginalized populations.
