Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I have a Doctorate in Philosophy and a Master of Social Work from Laurier. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Allan Gray Centre for Leadership Ethics at Rhodes University in South Africa.
In addition to teaching and research, I enjoy volunteering as a member of the Community Research Ethics Board.
