INTERESTS & ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

It has always been my goal to have students involved in community programs especially working with the Community Food Bank of Tucson and more recently produce distribution through either Market on the Move or Produce On Wheels With Out Waste, a win-win-win for students, the university and the community. Teaching focuses on Food – science, safety, preparation, management, and the role it plays in our culture and lives, whether personal or policy – local or national.
