Becoming 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 received my PhD in Psychology from McMaster University in 2002 under the supervision of Dr. John Platt, one of the most brilliant individuals I have ever met.
I started this journey teaching part-time on a number of Southern Ontario university campuses. I arrived at Laurier Brantford in 2002 and taught part-time for both Laurier and Nipissing University for a couple of years. I’ve been a full-time faculty member since 2004, and I joined the Leadership program in 2009.
The main focus of my research is curricular design. I am interested in how Leadership programs in post-secondary education are designed, the assessment of programs and the rationale behind curricular decisions. I am particularly interested in the inclusion of communication skills courses in university and college programs both in Canada and the United States.
My other area of interest in research is post-secondary student mobility, or the transfer process between Ontario colleges and universities (and vice versa).
