Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Psychomotor Behavior from the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo and my MSc in Exercise Science from the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Illinois.

Prior to joining Wilfrid Laurier University, I was an assistant professor in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

I am interested in examining the humanistic and psychological antecedents of exercise behavior change and sport performance. My interests are diverse in context, but common in approach, often centred upon processes of self-regulation. The goal of my research is to maximize human potential in a physical activity context. My research areas use concepts of behavioural regulation, such as goal setting, self-efficacy and behavioural intentions to influence such things as quality of life, outdoor physical activity, life transitions or coping with chronic illnesses.
