Bio/Research

I hold a PhD in Strategic Management from the Ivey School of Business (Ivey) at Western University. I also have an MBA from Ivey as well as an MA (English Literature) from Queen’s University and a BA (Hon. English Literature) and a BSc from the University of Waterloo. I am currently serving as the Director of the BBA Program at the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics where I teach business strategy at the undergraduate, MBA and Executive Masters level.

Before returning to academia, I served in senior roles in government including Chief of Staff at the Ontario Ministries of Health and Long-Term Care, Environment, Attorney General, and Transportation in Toronto, Canada. I also held roles in the private sector as a senior strategy, corporate communications and crisis management consultant to executive-level clients. My clients spanned the private, public and not-for-profit sectors and were primarily in the healthcare, environment and financial services fields.

I am currently a member of the Waterloo Regional Police Services Board and a member of the national Advocacy Committee of ALS Canada. I am a former National Council Member of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada.

My current research focuses on corporate governance, global healthcare management and innovation, and case-based learning. I have published a number of articles in peer-reviewed journals and have authored award-winning case studies that have been published in leading strategy textbooks and case journals.
