Dedicating her career to One Health, the connection between the health of humans, animals and the environment, she has written and co-authored numerous journal articles on One Health, public health, HIV/AIDS surveillance, vector-borne and zoonotic disease topics. Recognized nationally and internationally for her work, she has received the American Veterinary Epidemiology Society Gold Head Cane Award, Florida Public Health Woman of the Year Award and the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Public Service Award.
