I received my PhD in Sociology from McMaster University in 2017. My MA is in Sociology, and my BA in Criminology and Criminal Justice both from Carleton University.
Using interpretative theories, I study how women construct, manage, resist their identities in public. I am a qualitative researcher with a strong interest in developing and examining qualitative methodologies.
I have conducted research on the construction of violent women as well as women who are married to professional athletes. More recently, I have become interested in the intersections of crime, deviance and social control as applied to sports.
