I am most passionate about communicating with others what I continue to learn about living a life that honours the body, mind and spirit. My academic work enables me to commit a great deal of my time and energy to the sharing of knowledge - in the classroom, at conferences, among peers, in publications, in the clinic with the students I mentor. Please contact me if you would find my contributions to be of value for your organization; my presentation style tends to the interactive. Please see below for a list of selected presentations and publications. Principle areas of interest include:
- health promotion - pediatrics, particularly health promotion - stress management - optimal nutrition - fitness and physical activity - sexuality (along the lifespan - including promoting healthy sexuality for children, youth, and adults of all ages) - parenting
