More About Me

About Me

I received a Bachelor's degree in Religious Studies with a minor in Spanish from Humboldt University and a Master in Public Health degree with a concentration in International Health from Boston University. I am currently a Doctor of Public Health student at the University of South Florida, focusing my studies most specifically on behavior change and behavioral health translational research. I am particularly interested in incorporating MI in healthcare settings to address behavioral health issues including addiction treatment, prevention and harm reduction. I began coaching using MI in 2011 and am proficient in multiple coding systems including MITI 3.1.1 and 4.2.1, MICA, and HCPA. I have experience training and coaching MI in person, telephonically, online, and internationally. In addition, I am fluent in Spanish, have traveled extensively and lived abroad, and have expertise in engaging patients from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Trainer Statement

I combine my academic, personal, and professional experiences in public health to guide others towards positive behavior change in a culturally competent and patient centered manner utilizing Motivational Interviewing (MI). I am a certified health coach and MI coder (MICA, MITI 4.1.2, MITI 3.1.1 and HCPA) focusing my services on training for healthcare providers in MI. I believe that through utilization of MI, and a genuine empathetic lens, providers can positively impact the lives of people seeking healthy lifestyle change in all walks of life.
