Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Public Health Sciences from the University of Toronto in 2006, an MA in Psychology from the University of Toronto in 1994, and a BA (hons.) from the University of Winnipeg in 1989. Prior to joining Laurier, I was a scientist and director of community-based research at the Ontario HIV Treatment Network (2005-2008). I am an interdisciplinary public health researcher and I study how discrimination and other forms of marginalization affect health. I supervise graduate students in community psychology.

I research social exclusion as a social determinant of health and well-being for gender and sexual minorities in the Canadian context. I am the co-director of the Social Inclusion and Health Equity Research Group, at Laurier’s Centre for Community Research, Learning and Action. Current research foci include LGBTQ newcomers to Canada, LGBTQ youth, and transgender individuals. I work collaboratively with a number of talented researchers and community partners at the local, provincial, and national levels.
