Assisstant Professor, Kinesiology and Health Studies, University of Regina

I am an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies at the University of Regina. My research involves respectfully engaging and mobilizing individuals (i.e., youth) who often live on the margins to address significant societal challenges, such as homelessness, social exclusion/inclusion, and mental illness. Using a meaning-oriented and strengths-based approach to recreation and sport, my work primarily draws on the use of community-based participatory research methods and aims to build thriving communities and provide an effective support system through co-creating and co-implementing people-centred solutions through a social justice lens. I received a BA from the University of Waterloo, an MA from Dalhousie University, and a PhD from the University of Alberta.
