I have been with Athabasca University since 1996, first as a Learning Facilitator in the School of Business, then as Program Administrator in the Master of Arts - Intregrated Studies program, and now as Manager, Research Services.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in 1991 from the University of Alberta, concentrating in the areas of psychology and sociology. With degree in hand, I began to pursue my interests in the helping profession, where first I worked with at-risk teenager and their families. This was both a challenging and rewarding experience. Wanting to explore other avenues, but to continue to help others, I then began my graduate studies in the Master of Education program in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Alberta. It was during the final stages of my master’s degree that I began working at Athabasca University. My intentions at the time were to complete my degree in order to pursue a career in the private sector. However, my experience at AU enticed me to remain in the public education environment.

If I can be of assistance or answer any questions you may have regarding research at Athabasca University please feel free to contact me.
