Research Interests
My areas of interest are maternal-child health, leadership studies, and health communication. I combined my research interests to study online messaging as a vehicle for social support among surrogate mothers. I found that the preconception and conception periods were times when most support was needed and the majority of participants (91%) noted satisfaction with the support received from the online support group.
