She brings her scientific rigor to medical education evaluation monitoring the effectiveness of MCW-Central Wisconsin programs.  She collaborates with a biotech company, Biomeme, and UW-Stevens Point undergraduates in the development of tests for tick-borne illnesses.  She is happy to present to community members on the use of this iPhone dependent device and mentors medical students in community engaged research.
