After receiving my Bachelor's degree at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, I moved to Tucson and worked at the Arizona Health Sciences Center while receiving my Master's degree in nursing at the University of Arizona. I worked and conducted my research at the Arizona Cancer Center for many years, during which time I completed my PhD degree at the University of Arizona. I am a founding member of the Skin Cancer Institute at the Arizona Cancer Center and serve on the executive board. I have been an oncology nurse for many years and am a long-standing member of the Oncology Nursing Society and the American Society of Preventive Oncology. Currently, I conduct behavioral science research at the University of Arizona Cancer Center and Medical Center, primarily in the area of skin cancer. I also conduct international skin cancer research in Queensland, Australia.
