I am a behavioral scientist whose research, teaching, and applied work focus on designing physical and social environments to support individual and organizational health, performance, and wellbeing.

I am an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Minnesota Duluth, Executive Director of the Behavior Analysis in Health, Sport, and Fitness SIG, a non-profit organization, and Founder of InJewel LLC, a values-focused coaching and consulting company.

My research blends my training in applied behavior analysis and organizational behavior management with topics studied in the fields of occupational health psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, and applied sports psychology.

In general, I am interested in healthy lifestyle behavior change, performance management and improvement, behavior-based and values-focused coaching, the behavioral processes underlying athletic performance, and the integration of Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) to health, behavior, and human performance coaching.

I coach and consult with adult individuals, groups and teams, and organizations. Find out more about my services.
