About me:
I am currently situated in Ottawa, Ontario on the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin and Anishinaabe peoples. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Archaeology and Medieval Studies, and a Graduate Certificate in Autism and Behaviour Sciences. I completed my Master of Social Work at Carleton University and am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.

Why I chose Carleton:
I chose Carleton because of the support that I received during my Master in Social Work, which I continue to get throughout my doctorate. At Carleton, I have been intellectually challenged, well-supported financially, and found community in the School of Social work, in the Carleton community, and in Ottawa.

Research Interests:
My research centres around: research ethics, disability, autism, sexual violence, and eating disorders.
