I received my PhD in Social Psychology from the University of Waterloo in 1979. I am a registered psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
Prior to joining Laurier in 2006, I was professor in the Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition and associate dean in the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Guelph.

The underlying focus of my research is aging and intergenerational family relationships. I am interested in how adults of all ages develop and tell their personal stories, and what contributes to successful aging. This includes the kinds of family and recreational activities in which they engage, including recreational gambling.
I supervise students at the master’s and doctoral levels who have an interest in family relationships.
