Professional Summary


Research interests

As Center Coordinator for CS-CASH, I provide the Center Director with assistance in planning, coordinating and monitoring the 23 projects funded by the Center. These projects encompass research, prevention/intervention, education/translation, outreach, evaluation, and cross-disciplinary efforts. I engage internal and external advisory committees, oversee fiscal and resource management, maintain records, and compile Center reports. I serve as the course director for the annual, week-long Agricultural Medicine Course that provides continuing education credits to health care providers across the US. In addition to administrative responsibilities I am involved in the Center’s active Outreach program. This program delivers educational materials, demonstrations and presentations on the topics of respiratory and hearing protection, as well as injury prevention to the agricultural community in the Center’s seven states region.
