Welcome

As an educator and researcher, I see many ways we can improve ourselves in the areas of health, education, and technology. Through this forum, I hope to add to the body of knowledge available to my students and other information seekers – knowledge in a form that is readily understandable.  Please keep in mind that although I am a health educator, I am not dispensing medical advice.

I am an adjunct professor in the Department of Wellness and Science at Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  The students I encounter have basic information in health and technology, but what they seek is the knowledge to further their skills.

In my daily life I am also an Education Specialist with the US Food and Drug Administration and hold the rank of Lieutenant in the Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service as a Health Services Officer.

As for academic credentials, I have two master’s degrees – one in Educational Leadership and the second in Exercise Science and Health Promotion.  In addition to these formal degrees, I have certifications as a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, Microsoft Certified Trainer, and Certified Technical Trainer. I am also a Red Cross Instructor and a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES).

Professional affiliations include the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), the American Association for Health Education (AAHE), and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).  My current research involves college student physical activity and health indices. Yes, I have an insatiable passion for learning and sharing information.  I am and always will be both a student and teacher.

It is this experience and passion that I present to you in this online forum.
