I have an M.A. in Sociology from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario; an Hons. B.A. in Canadian Studies/History and Sociology from Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario; and an Hons. B.Sc. in Health Sciences (Physiotherapy) from Queen's University in Kingston Ontario. I started my career working in health care but then returned to an academic setting in the social sciences and humanities where I developed my critical thinking, research, and writing skills.
