I have been a part of the CRaNHR team since September 2013. I received my Masters in Applied Social Research from Laurentian University in 2011, and also hold a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Anthropology from Laurentian. My training and experience is in both qualitative and quantitative research methods.
Since joining the CRaNHR team, I have been working on three innovative Health Systems Research Fund projects within the Health Human Resources and Virtual Health Care Programs. The projects I am working on pertain to the impact of telemedicine and distance learning in rural and remote northern communities, as well as to the admissions process of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine and its relation to the school's social accountability mandate.
Prior to joining CRaNHR, I worked for two years as a Community Database Coordinator and Researcher, primarily in the fields of housing and homelessness. I am also a member of the City of Greater Sudbury's Community Advisory Board on Homelessness. Throughout my Masters' education, I studied and worked as a Research Assistant in the areas of supported housing and poverty among persons with serious mental illness in rural and northern communities.
