I am returning to the Psychology Department after having held a visiting position here in the 2011-2012 academic year, and having graduated myself from St. Lawrence in 2004. During my years as a student at SLU, I played on the women’s ice hockey team and was an active member of the Psychology Department; I worked in the Developmental Lab, was a member of Psi Chi, and remember the EPA conference trip as one of the highlights of my senior year.
After graduating, I earned my M.A in Human Kinetics with a concentration in Sport Psychology at the University of Ottawa. I had wonderful opportunities to both work and conduct research with a variety of teams before realizing that my interests truly lay in the area of health. Subsequently, I made the move to the University of Windsor for my Ph.D. in Applied Social Psychology with a focus in Health Psychology. I graduated in 2013 after being named Outstanding Graduate Researcher for the previous academic year.
My research interests are related to the health and well-being of marginalized individuals, such as women, youth, and chronic disease sufferers, and I favor mixed methods approaches. In particular, I am interested in how people access their health care services. Over the years, I have traveled to Tanzania and Nigeria for research, and have been able to present my work in Canada, the US, and abroad.
At St. Lawrence, I will be teaching Introductory Psychology, Health Psychology, and another course. When I am not teaching, I love to play and watch sports. I still play hockey, soccer, ultimate frisbee, and I run almost every day. I also love yoga and hiking. I am hoping to once again coach the SLU Women’s Club Hockey team, and you will often finding me cheering on the Saints at sporting events.
