Areas of work

As a nutrition and health education specialist with a food science background, an area of work that I target is food safety. I am currently a certified proctor for ServSafe. I teach the ServSafe course on a regular basis.

I am currently serving as a member of the Global Foods Thematic team. The global food team is currently exploring where MU Extension will need to focus its resources in the upcoming years.

I am currently working with two teams to develop new curriculum for men's health and sports nutrition.
