I received my PhD in Management from the Department of Management in the School of Business and Economics at the University of Guelph and my Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from Wilfrid Laurier University. Prior to joining Wilfrid Laurier University, I have worked as a lecturer and part-time professor at the University of Guelph, Conestoga College and Wilfrid Laurier University.
My research examines how innovative social entrepreneurial ventures mobilize resources by working collaboratively across sectors. Resource mobilization efforts that I have examined include in-kind stakeholder contributions and my current research examines the efficacy of crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter.com for generating funds for social enterprise.
