My research, community involvement and clinical practice revolve around reproductive health issues, particularly for women. My current two research studies are "Jackson County Latina Health Coalition: A Community-Academic Partnership to Promote Improved Latina Reproductive Health" funded by the Northwest health Foundation and "Development of a Theater Intervention to Promote Latino Parent-Adolescent Sexual Communication" funded by Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute.

My nursing practice for the past twenty years has been rural-based and I am interested in the rural influence on health outcomes and health equity. Living in Hawaii for eighteen years encouraged my concern for cultural diversity and social justice and I am committed to developing a nursing workforce who can provide expert nursing care to diverse populations.
