Personal Bio & Interests
I have authored many journal articles and textbook chapters on a wide variety of topics in sports medicine. My research interests lie in the areas of physical activity assessment and promotion, practice-based research in primary care, the Female Athlete Triad, and sports injury prevention.
When not seeing patients, I work at my treadmill desk, walking 1.2 miles per hours while working. It provides me the opportunity to walk upwards of 5 miles per day! In addition, I love to hike, ski and ride my bike with friends and family. My husband Jim is also a sports medicine physician, and we have 2 kids ages 12 and 10, along with a 60 lb chocolate lab who thinks she is a cat.
