I am a Women's Health nurse practitioner, a public health nurse, and a nurse-midwife by training. My research activities entail health promotion and risk reduction of pregnant women at risk. My research activities in the past include from passive immunity of low birth weight infants to Japanese expatriates' birth experiences in Unites States. More recently, my research focuses on achieving healthy weight gain during pregnancy among obese women of low-income background. I collaborate with a wide range of interdisciplinary scholars nationally and internationally to identify and test sustainable behavior interventions to achieve healthy weight gain for low income pregnant women. I am passionate about providing high quality prenatal care for all pregnant women.
