I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Research on Inner City Health at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. I received my PhD from York University in 2010 and my MA from Queen’s University in 2005.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was an assistant professor in Sociology at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick.
My areas of specialization are youth studies, health equity and arts and community based research. My recent projects include a narrative study of homeless youth’s access to health and social services, an evaluation of community-based research uptake at Planned Parenthood Toronto, and arts-based, youth-led projects with Indigenous youth around HIV prevention, leadership and decolonization.
I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of health equity, social justice and youth-driven community-based research.
