Join us at Laurier

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.

Reasons for Being at Laurier?

I chose the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics because I felt like I had the best match with my supervisor and the program would set me up to be in the best possible situation to find a job after I graduate.

The thing I like most is how supportive the faculty in my area have been throughout my time here. Not just my immediate supervisor, there have been a few other key people who also have the best interests of the students in mind with everything they do.

Research Interests

My research interests center around diversity and teams in the workplace. In terms of diversity, my research examines how speakers with non-native English accents are perceived in the workplace and how these perceptions influence workplace outcomes like hiring recommendations.

I am also interested in women in leadership, specifically why there are so few women in top leadership positions and what we can do about it. In the teams’ area, my interests include team conflict, communication, and how perceived diversity affects team processes and outcomes.

Career Goal

My career goal is to obtain a tenure-track position to continue my research and teach students about this exciting field. Wherever I end up, I also want to start a lab to work with and train undergrad and grad students in OB/HRM research.
