Research Focus: My primary area of research is sport social work. I examine the mental and/or behavioral health needs of college and professional athletes.

Potential Student Project(s):  I am currently working on multiple projects related to sport social work. These projects include: (1) efforts on increasing mental health literacy of college athletes, (2) using sport social work as a platform for international diplomacy, (3) advancing training and education on sport social work, and (4) the role of coaches on an athlete's well-being.

Attributes/skills/background sought in undergraduate: I am looking for a mentee that is independent, passionate, and provides a critical lens to their efforts.

Mentoring Plan: I am prepared to meet with my mentee on a weekly basis to discuss project status and to ensure a successful plan for presentation and publication of our scholarly work.
