She is part of NACDD’s diabetes portfolio team, and focuses primarily on state-based work to establish and operationalize Medicaid coverage for the CDC-supported National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP). She has nearly 20 years of experience in health education, adult learning, and instructional and curriculum design. Her roles with NACDD include facilitating collaboration between Medicaid and State Health Department partners, designing and leading learning collaboratives, and providing technical assistance to states and partners.
