Over the past 15 years, my clinical experience as a pediatric nurse practitioner has encompassed working with children and families to promote healthy choices. My personal belief is that families can work together to build each other up and foster optimal wellness. Using family and friends as pillars to endorse healthy behaviors not only promotes health, passively, obesity rates can be reduced. Utilizing my clinical experience and public health background, I chose to focus my clinical research on parlaying technology to reach and deliver health education and behavior change skills though primary care. As part of my doctoral study, I explored how cognitive behavior therapy and technology can be used to promote health behavior change. From that area of research, I was able to work in conjunction with software companies to extend conceptual clinical ideas into software applications to deliver simple triggers over text messaging to families with a child diagnosed with overweight or obesity. Going forward, my research goal is to optimize the interaction between pediatric clinical care and health information technology.
