Research Interests: 

Working in the areas of aging, gender, and health, the focus of my research is to promote equity and quality of life for seniors and family caregivers in the community, particularly during end-of-life. Building from my doctoral work, I will explore how the social determinants of health (e.g. geography, class, age gender, or race) shape experiences. The ultimate goal is to optimize health and healthcare experiences, particularly for the disadvantaged during vulnerable times.
