I received my Masters of Science Degree in Management (Strategy) at the Smith School of Business at Queen's University. I began a PhD program at the Beedie School of Business in September of 2019. I am a second-year, post-comps PhD candidate in the Strategy specialization. My research is focused on strategic entrepreneurship in non-typical, or marginalized business settings (Indigenous-owned businesses, stigmatized industries, co-operatives, etc). I am particularly interested in how entrepreneurs who either find themselves in - or who chose to work in - the margins of the mainstream market, find and serve their customers, while meeting their own goals, objectives, and conceptions of success. I have been trained to work with Indigenous, qualitative, and quantitative methodologies. I have received both BC Graduate Student Scholarships and a SSHRC doctoral award.
