translating scientific discoveries to Improve child & family well-being
In 2020, I decided to merge my experience in child mental health and family well-being with my passion for animals and my appreciation of the strength of the human-animal bond. In Fall 2020, I started coursework toward my master's degree in social work at Cleveland State University, with a focus on offering animal-assisted therapies at my new non-profit organization, Two Birds Farm.
seasoned public health communications professional
For over two and a half decades, I have collaborated with teams of child and family-focused NIH-funded university-based scientists and non-profit organizations to more quickly translate scientific findings to practice, and ultimately, improve child and family well-being.
From conducting background research ~ to editing and co-authoring manuscripts, writing clinical trial recruitment materials, or developing website content or research center newsletters, coordinating, writing and/or editing NIH grant applications (R21, R03, R01, P20, P30, P50) ~ I complete a wide variety of critical research communications and research administration tasks.
In short, I take care of all the details, so that you can focus on the most important thing: your science.
