I received my PhD in Sociology from the University of British Columbia in 1995, and joined the Sociology and Anthropology Department at Laurier in the same year. I came to Laurier Brantford as associate dean in 2003 because of the incredible opportunity to participate in the development of Laurier’s Brantford campus.
I have seen the campus grow from 300 students to over 3000, the development of over a dozen new academic programs, and the addition of numerous buildings. All of this has been done in the remarkable community of Brantford, with the help of people from Brant County, Six Nations and the Mississaugas of the New Credit.
My research and teaching interests are generally in the areas of the sociology of work and entrepreneurship, health, education and environmental sociology. I also teach both quantitative and qualitative research methods, and unlike many of my students in these classes, I enjoy these courses immensely.
