I provide programmatic leadership of NCI's Research to Reality (http://researchtoreality.cancer.gov) online community of practice for cancer control researchers and practitioners. It is an engaging and challenging role.
I am registered dietitian with a background in maternal and child health. For the past several years at NCI, I have worked on a variety of programs and projects developing and disseminating high-quality well-tailored educational material to clearly communicate risk, interpret data and promote healthy lifestyles.
Prior to coming to the NCI, I developed, administered, planned, and evaluated public health nutrition programs at the state (DC), county (Person County, NC) and community level (DC Hunger Action, Bread for the City and the Urban League). I maintain a private nutrition counseling practice as well as an active household.
