Talia completed her MA thesis in 2021 in the Department of Recreation and Leisure at Brock University. Her research focused on postnatal women's experiences of physically active leisure and how gendered expectations of motherhood impact their participation in community team sport after the birth of a child.

After graduation, Talia accepted a full-time position with Brock University’s Human Rights and Equity Office.
