Assistant Professor, Community Health Sciences in Calgary, Alberta, Canada
I am a health sociologist working in public health research, with a degree in Behavioural Health Sciences and Addiction Studies. My research interests are in public health and harm reduction approaches to substance use and drug policy reform.
I am known for tobacco and cannabis research with youth, and for my role as Kathleen Mead on the Canadian television series Degrassi Junior High.
I was born and raised in downtown Toronto and have lived in Montreal, Saskatoon, and Vancouver.
