About Me

With a background in public health and health communication, I currently serve as the Communications Specialist for the Center for Health Environments & Communities (CHEC) at the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH), Department of Environmental & Occupational Health (EOH). Recognizing the need for environmental health information to be made available & accessible to the public, I am also currently revitalizing CHEC's website & web content.

I joined CHEC in 2009 after earning a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from the University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health in the Behavioral & Community Health Sciences (BCHS) department. During the pursuit of my MPH, I conducted internships through CHEC's Allegheny River Stewardship Project (ARSP) & the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's (UPMC) Healthy Choices for Students program. An academic-athletic scholar, I received my Bachelor of the Arts degree in Psychology from Washington & Jefferson College, graduating magna cum laude in 2006.

I previously served as the Program Assistant and Webmaster for the world's first Center for Environmental Oncology (CEO), founded within the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. At the CEO, I was responsible for the web content, designing & distributing marketing & educational pieces, & the educational outreach of environmental links to cancer to the general public & health professionals.

My research interests include how environmental health information should be presented to expansive online communities & in printed media, how the environment (including the built environment) affects behavioral habits, & whether adjusting that environment (on the Internet & elsewhere) could result in significant health behavior changes.
