Bio/Research

I received my PhD (Health Studies and Gerontology) and my MA (Gerontology) from the University of Waterloo. I graduated from Laurentian University with a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education.

Prior to joining Laurier, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the research department at Providence Healthcare.

My research is broadly focused in health, chronic illness, disability and caregiving. Specifically, I have 2 main areas of research.

I explore the “lived experiences” of individuals with chronic conditions (e.g., pediatric cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease) and/or disabilities (e.g., autism). These experiences are examined from the views of the diagnosed individual, their family members and health care professionals.

I also examine older adults and seniors at risk with respect to falling and various health behaviours (e.g., health screening, medication safety).
