My mission is to help families and clinicians care for children with obesity or who have been sexually abused. I review the latest childhood obesity research and then translate my findings into informative, compassionate articles to help families and clinicians better understand the prevention and treatment of childhood obesity and child sexual abuse. I am currently writing books for families and clinicians about how best to care for children with obesity with compassion and empathy.
My novel, Howard Be Thy Name is about Evie Edwards, a divorced, mother of four children, falls in love with Howard Russo, a newly ordained Catholic priest. Unyielding to the consequences their relationship will have on her children, Evie throws herself and her children into a life of secrecy, lies, and betrayals. The story asks how could this secret life go undetected and seeks to demonstrate that there are many victims of the sex abuse scandal that continues to plague the Catholic Church.
