About Me:
I'm an applied anthropologist working in the field of public health and am currently Associate Director of Health Promotion and Education at Western Michigan University. As an undergrad I studied biological and medical anthropology, where I did research on diabetes and other chronic "diseases of civilization." I completed a master's in global health and have spent the last two years doing community work, for non profits in the San Francisco Bay Area and am now in higher education. My current work is focused on alcohol prevention and I'm interested in maintaining a connection to anthro through my own endeavors and the work of my grandfather.
