Research Interests

My program of research generates knowledge and interventions to facilitate optimal health and psychosocial outcomes for children and adolescents at risk due to poverty, discrimination and/ or chronic condition. My research grew out of my experiences as an advanced practice nurse and the relationships I built with organizations in the Milwaukee community.  While I have utilized a variety of research methodologies, my specialties are qualitative and community-based, participatory research.  More recently, I have used arts-based methods and interventions to teach strategies to manage stress and promote healthy interpersonal relationships.   Specifically, I have conducted research with children and adolescents regarding promotion of healthy interpersonal relationships; prevention of interpersonal violence; sexual risk reduction; and religiosity and spirituality.
