Personal Information


Currently Teaching (2017-2018)

My interests lie in the areas of clinical laboratory science, maternal and infant health, and public health - particularly health and wellness. My focus is on preparing students to function in their private practice as well as interdisciplinary practices. I use many patient cases during class to make the classroom experience as clinically relevant as possible. Because I enjoy the detective work involved in arriving at a patient’s diagnosis, I consult with field doctors, students and colleagues regarding lab work.

I am a diplomate of the American Chiropractic Academy of Neurology, American Chiropractic Board of Nutrition, American Board of Chiropractic Internists, and American Board of Chiropractic Orthopedists. I was the first female diplomate in chiropractic orthopedics in the state of Minnesota. I am also a standardized patient trainer for the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as well as the College of Chiropractic.

My involvement in research includes: associate editor of a journal, editorial board member of several peer-reviewed journals and a peer-reviewer for several more. I was also a member of the Public Health Model Syllabus research project, Delphi panel member for an international pediatrics consensus project in 2009, and Delphi panel member for the health and wellness consensus project in 2011.

In addition to serving as a member on several University committees, I am the chair of the University’s Institutional Review Board and Behavioral Standards Committee. I also represent the profession as a member of a national utilization and management committee and was one of 35 members at the Conference for the Establishment of Guidelines for Chiropractic Quality Assurance and Standards of Practice.
