My research program examines the use of innovative teaching pedagogy, simulation, to teach clinical and non-technical skills such as women's health, lactation, and health communication. My most recent work involves testing of a global interprofessional therapeutic communication scale to assess therapeutic relationships between providers and patients. Through texts, workshops, and conference proceedings I have used technology to empower faculty, students, and health care providers to incorporate creative, practical, and research-based knowledge into pleasurable learning experiences. My clinical focus is reproductive social justice through the promotion and support of lactation and transition to new parenthood specifically for underserved populations. I consult internationally on lactation, simulation, nursing and interprofessional education.
