Professional Summary

The objectives of the University of Cincinnati Education and Research Center (UC-ERC) include interdisciplinary graduate education and research training through targeted and pilot programs, continuing education, outreach, and discipline-specific training. Among my key UC-ERC roles is serving as the Director of OHN, providing mentorship for Outreach. I am a currently licensed RN. I received a BSN degree from UC and an MPH degree in Public Nursing Specialty from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and have over 10 years of work experience as a nurse. In 1991, I moved to academia and worked at the UC as Research Associate and Project Coordinator where I oversaw and mentored many pre-med, medical, and other health profession graduate students’ work activities on health research projects. After receiving my PhD in epidemiology in 2001, I worked at NIOSH as the only Division epidemiologist, providing formal and informal mentoring and consultation to colleagues from multiple occupational health disciplines. My research efforts have spanned from respiratory effects of workers exposure to ceramic fibers to reproductive effects of bicycling. As a NIOSH Project Officer, I studied the respiratory health of nail salon workers. My cited publications show a history of collaboration with investigators from many disciplines, including faculty members at the UC-ERC, and inclusion of women and minorities in research. Also, I have authored/coauthored four health related book chapters (all peer-reviewed, one submitted for publication), including first authorship of one in a major occupational and environmental medicine textbook. Recently, in collaboration with NIH, CDC, and academic partners for a non-research Division at NIOSH. I started as Assistant Professor at the College of Nursing on March 15, 2014. As Director, I participate in ERC Directors’ meetings and interdisciplinary course meetings to discuss ERC issues, plan future activities and evaluate Center outcomes. I serve as program leader for the OHN program, and interface with the Director of the Doctoral Program, Associate Dean for Research and the Dean of the College of Nursing. I have the knowledge, skills, and expertise to serve as the Director of OHN program and as one of the mentors in the Outreach.

Research and Practice Interests

I am an occupational health nurse researcher and occupational health epidemiologist.  My current research phenomenon of interest concerns physical activity levels in the workplace and community. 

In collaboration with UC Education and Research Center students and faculty, my secondary research focus is on the occupational exposures and risks that attend work in home health settings and among vulnerable worker populations.

My past research focused on biomarkers of exposures and disease among occupational groups.  Pulmonary and reproductive health outcomes were characteristic of my past work.
