Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Sociology from the University of Calgary in 2009, and soon after moved to the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishnawbe and Netural people to become a member of the Laurier Brantford community. My research and teching is deeply intertwined with my activism, and is focused on the areas of gender and sexuality from an intersectional, anti-racist feminist perspective.

Prior to starting my position here at Laurier, I grew up on Treaty 7 territory in Calgary and then moved to complete my undergraduate and masters degrees at Simon Fraser University. Following the completion of my Master of Arts in Criminology, I worked for a few years with a children’s mental health research unit at the University of British Columbia and then went onto complete my doctoral studies.

I am interested in the application of anti-oppressive, anti-racist, feminist, and intersectional thinking in the community-based, activist and academic scholarhsip that I engage in. Most of my published academic work has focused on the intersections of gender and sexuality as it relates to health, illness, medicine/psychiatry, and anti-violence work.

In the community of Brantford and Brant County, I am a member of the The Bridge committee. We are a grassroots group that works to identify and address inequities experienced by the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and to promote safer spaces for everyone. I also work with the Sexual Assault Centre of Brant in support of anti-violence education and advocacy, as well as contriubting to a number of equity-related initiatives both within the post-secondary sector and beyond.
