More About Me

About Me

I am an Oncology Nurse Specialist by training, and have spent over 25 years working in Behavioral Medicine Research on numerous studies aimed at promoting health and wellness. In this capacity, I have helped to design, implement and evaluate health behavior studies that incorporated Motivational Interviewing as a method for promoting health behavior change. I received my TNT training in Santa Fe, NM in 1994 and have been a member of MINT since its inception. I have been actively involved in the MINT network throughout the years, helping to organize and plan MINT Forums, served as a TNT trainer 3 times (2007; 2009; 2016) and served as a MINT Board member. I have done hundreds of MI trainings, both in the US and abroad, for various types of lay and cinical health providers to address health behaviors that impact the most common chronic diseases (smoking, eating habits, physical activity) as well as HIV and cancer risk reduction, substance use and general health promotion. The training and coaching I provide spans various settings, including research, clinical and community.
