Quarters with STRIDE: Since 2008
Skills Acquired at STRIDE:
I have enjoyed getting to know the wonderful people out in the community that are all working to improve health on the Central Coast.
As we all know, the factors that lead to an obesity problem in our society are very complex and so potential solutions can come from many sectors – social, educational, medical, civil, governmental. I have the privilege of working with them all!
By connecting the University and STRIDE’s research team to the community, we can form collaborations and partnerships that benefit students, faculty, agencies and their clients.
I am proud to represent STRIDE in the community, by being a member of various coalitions including Healthy Eating Active Living - SLO, a newly created Food Systems Coalition yet to be named, and gleanSLO, an organization dedicated to recapturing healthy local food into our food system. In my free time, I also serve on the board of the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County.
