Professor, Director of the Community Health, Environment, and Wellness Lab, University of Windsor

I am a multidisciplinary researcher who strives to advance the health and wellness among Canadian children and adolescents. More specifically, I am a community-based researcher who investigates the environmental influences (e.g., family, peers, school, media) on nutrition, physical activity, body image, and other health outcomes. Much of my research is done in partnership with various public health units, the Bulimia and Anorexia Nervosa Association (BANA), Leadership Advancement for Women and Sport (LAWS), and the Ontario Student Nutrition Program.
