Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Educational Studies from Western University in 2006 and my Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Brock University in 2000. My BA (Political Science, History) is from Wilfrid Laurier University (1990) and my BEd is from Western University (1992). I was a school administrator, special education teacher and consultant, and classroom teacher for 15 years before coming to Laurier.

I am past-president of the Comparative and International Education Society of Canada and the director of Laurier's Centre for Leading Research in Education (CLRiE).

I am currently Principal Investigator on two SSHRC-funded studies examining how school principals support students with special education needs in their schools. I am also involved in two other major SSHRC-funded studies examining inclusive education in Canada and Ghana. Please see my research site for more information on these projects.

My research interests include inclusion and school leadership in international contexts. I travel regularly to Haiti, Ghana, and Egypt where I am involved in school leadership capacity-building. Recent research studies have been published in International Studies in Educational Administration, Comparative and International Education, Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, Journal of Teaching and Learning, and Planning and Changing.
