Full CV

I earned a B.S., M.A., and Ph.D. in Health Education and Promotion from The University of Alabama. I also earned a M.B.A. from The University of Alabama's Manderson Business Graduate Program. My doctoral dissertation focused on body image among African American collegiate athletes with emphasis on its association with exercise dependence, orthorexia nervosa, and other eating disorders.

I joined UAB in 2012, and am currently working as a postdoctoral trainee with Dr. Olivia Affuso on her R01 NIH-funded Photobody Study. I am currently in the early stages of initiating my postdoctoral study where I will investigate factors associated with cardiometabolic risk among overweight and obese African American males.
