I completed a BSc and a MA in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa, and a PhD in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen’s University. My academic training has taken place in the fields of sociology of sport, recreation and leisure studies, and outdoor education. I have engaged with different labs, literatures, theories, and methods, which have allowed me to grow as an interdisciplinary scholar.
