Research Interests

Currently have a peer-reviewed journal article (along with Dr. A. Woodson-Smith and Dr. C. Dorwart) titled "Attitudes towards Physical Education from Female High School Students" which will publish in the Physical Educator in 2015. In addition, I will conclude my dissertation titled "Physical Activity Behaviors of Hispanic College Students: An Application of the Theory of Planned Behavior" by 2016. The dissertation will also be published in the ProQuest journal.

My research interests include: Attitudes of African-American student-athletes from HBCUs compared to African-American student-athletes at PWIs, Hispanic youth and physical activity behaviors, physical activity behaviors among minority youth, and the importance of athletics to minority groups.
