My Background

 

International and Indigenous Wellness Research

 

Philosophy and Approach

 

I am committed to conducting research with communities that leads to meaningful change. Together we unpack problems and find solutions to things that community members and study participants decide are important. Ongoing themes include improving mental and physical well-being of children/youth and working with Indigenous communities to preserve cultural knowledge and address racism. I am an Assistant Professor in Kinesiology and Health Studies at the University of Regina and a research scientist with the Saskatchewan Population Health Evaluation and Research Unit in Saskatchewan, one of the prairie provinces in Canada. I currently hold both CIHR and Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation funding. I am a previous Michael Smith Research Fellow and CIHR Fellow. I hold a PhD in Community Health Sciences and a Master's of Arts in Native Studies, both from the University of Manitoba, Canada. When not doing research, you will find me drinking coffee or tea with a book in hand, playing the violin/fiddle, volunteering in the community, doing home renovations or spending time at the dog park with my rescue German Shepard, Oliver.
