She serves on the Health District of Northern Larimer County Board of Directors and is a member of the Provost’s Council for Engagement, a team representing each college with a mission to advance the practice and recognition of engaged scholarship. Her research has included developing numerous relationships with external partners over the last 10 years including the Healthy Hearts program with the Heart Center of the Rockies, La Clinica Tepeyac, a medical clinic providing health care for medically underserved individuals in Denver, and most recently the 10th Special Forces Group at Fort Carson.
