PHASE Asia Pacific is a conference for all educators focussed on physical education, health, athletics, sports, and experiential learning.  The conference allows participants to learn from leading authorities in their respective fields as well as from practitioner presenters, to network with fellow educators, and to access good practice and resources in multiple formats.

PHASE has evolved from the Asia Pacific Physical Education Conference (APPEC) which was a dedicated Physical Education & Wellness event for the Asia Pacific region starting in 2015.

Ask me about fun strategies to increase moderate to vigorous physical activity in PE with CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) . I am the National CATCH Coordinator for FlagHouse, the publisher and distributor of the CATCH Program, and have been on the CATCH team for over 17 years. I focus on connecting CATCH with national partners, foundations, and community based organizations that support child health and obesity prevention. Together with the University of Texas, I have helped guide the CATCH program from a university research initiative, to a nationwide program implemented in over 11,000 US communities in 50 states, and abroad. I travel extensively, meeting with Federal and State level funding and advocacy groups, departments of health and education, legislative bodies, healthcare systems, and international child health organizations. A CATCH Master Trainer, I have had a varied CATCH related career, having implemented CATCH as a YMCA after school coordinator, and summer camp physical activity director, and have trained teaching staff in India, Russia, and South America,
