We are excited to introduce you to our newest team member, Daniela Fine! Daniela graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Biobehavioral Health. As an undergraduate student, she worked as a research assistant at the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Center for a research study titled Just Breathe, a mindfulness meditation program for college freshman. Through this, she furthered her interest and knowledge of contemplative practice. Upon graduation, she worked as a project coordinator for the Family Foundations research study, an NIH-funded longitudinal research study for first-time expecting parents. During this time, she was involved in the development and implementation of several additional projects with various focuses and audiences.
In her new role here at Healthy Oxford Hills, Daniela will be working under the Substance Use Prevention Services grants. This work will include working with an assortment of business owners and organizations to develop updated tobacco policies, as well as providing resources and educational programming to the greater Oxford County communities that aims to decrease substance use among community members. Outside of work, Daniela enjoys spending time outdoors with her dogs, listening to music, and cooking.
