I am a professor in the Department of Health Sciences, Public Health and the Academic Lead for the Online MPH Program with Tseng College. I have a Ph.D. in Health Studies from Texas Woman’s University, am a Certified Health Education Specialist, and a Public Health Fellow from the University of North Carolina. I have published journal articles on women’s health, Latino health disparities, and instructional technology, and was a contributing author for a published book and booklet series on breast cancer. I am currently the Program Director for a 2 million dollar U.S. Department of Education grant, CAMINO, in support of Hispanic Health and Human Development (HHD) graduate student success and professional preparation. I am an executive founding member of CSUN's Center for Assessment, Research, and Evaluation (CARE). My career experience includes close to 2 years of teaching in higher education and close to ten years in the non-profit field. I worked in non-profit management and health education at a non-profit breast cancer organization. Some of the courses I teach: (undergraduate and graduate), include the following: current issues in public health, evaluation, program planning, cultural health, environmental health, women's health, psychosocial health, health behavior change, drugs and human health, health communications, and grant writing. In my free time, I received global health grants to travel to China, Cuba, Japan and Peru. I look forward to working with you!
