I have a M.S. degree in Biology
and I am in a Health Sciences PhD program. I am a Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP), an Activity Professional --
Board Certified (AP-BC), and am developing a career in gerontology.
My dissertation research will focus on the Activities profession. I
seek to advance the Activities profession through research on how Activities staff use what they have learned to help elderly
Residents, especially those suffering from dementia.
