Interests/Research: My professional involvement centers on improving leisure opportunities for persons with disabling condition. I research from a Ecological perspective that acknowledges that fulfilling leisure engagement is the function of both person and environment. As such, I am interested in the effective education of future and the continuing development of practicing professionals related to both appropriate behavior change interventions and impetus for social change.
