As an educator I prioritize real world experiences from my time spent as an itinerant K-12 adapted physical education specialist and utilize these examples to illustrate how to connect concepts and theories presented in class to actual teaching practices. I have taught courses focusing on adapted physical activity and physical education teaching methods. While at San Jose State I look forward to working with the Timpany Center to provide and promote inclusive aquatic and land based activities for individuals with disabilities. I have previously served as a student representative on the National Consortium for Physical Education for Individuals with Disabilities board, working as part of team to put on the annual conference and for the advocacy of quality physical education for individuals with disabilities. As a new faculty member I look forward to participating in the deeply routed tradition of teaching excellence and am passionate about developing well trained and highly qualified physical education teacher candidates.

Expertise, Research & Teaching Interests
My research works to address inequalities faced by individuals with disabilities in physical activity/education settings and enhances health and wellness through the promotion of physical activity for this population. I have previously examined the effect of policies and social influences on promotion of physical activity for individuals with disabilities. My areas of expertise include adapted physical activity/education, physical education, and public health (i.e., health promotion).
