I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Implementation Science in the School of Medicine and Member of Wake Forest Baptist Health’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. My research focuses on organizational determinants of implementation, middle managers’ role in implementing evidence-based practices, the implementation of innovations in cancer care, and the selection and application of implementation theories. I have received research funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Cancer Research Network, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Cancer Institute. I serve as Co-Chair of the American College of Surgeons Clinical Research Program Committee on Dissemination and Implementation and as an expert speaker for organizations such as the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the Veterans Affairs Center for Clinical Management Research, and the Center for Disease Prevention and Control’s National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program Directors. I am also committed to the advancement of women scholars. I have published on the topic and co-host AcaDames, a podcast about women in academia.
I have won awards for distinguished scholarly achievement, including the Doctoral Competitive Merit Scholarship, the Academy of Management’s Health Care Management Division’s Emerging Scholars Program and Best Paper Based on a Dissertation.
