Dr. Becky Salomon is ANCC-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and a nurse scientist developing her program of research in the areas of health equity, maternal/child health, biobehavioral methods, and intervention science. Her long-term research goal is to design multilevel, community-based interventions for mothers under social disadvantage that reduce stress-related biological activation during early motherhood.
Becky graduated from Wellesley College in 2004, where she double majored in Psychology and English. She completed her training as a psychiatric nurse practitioner at Vanderbilt University and has been board certified since 2013. After working in inpatient psychiatry, Becky returned to school, completing her doctoral degree in May 2019 at UNC SON, with a minor in Neuroscience and a graduate certificate in Nursing Education. Next, Becky completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the School of Nursing at the University of California, San Francisco School of Nursing followed by a second postdoctoral fellowship at UNC SON. Becky recently received pilot funding from the Carolina Center of Excellence in Total Worker Health and Well-Being to investigate the multilevel stressors that may make it challenging for socioeconomically disadvantaged working mothers to maintain employment and protect their health and well-being.
