My research interests are in college student mental health issues. Specifically, my research examined the effectiveness of a suicide prevention program that taught community members how to recognize warning signs for suicide. For my doctoral dissertation research, I partnered with staff members from a large, public university in the southwest region of the country, to evaluate the results from a suicide prevention training program, known as Question, Persuade, Refer© (QPR). My professional and research interests have provided me with an opportunity to interact and engage with multi-disciplinary colleagues. Thus, additional scholarly interests include the application of interprofessional educational opportunities within public health coursework.
