The I SUPPORT SCS IN ALBERTA social media avatar was co-created by me and three other advocates in the summer of 2019. Please feel free to download and use the versions here (credit appreciated).
I am a health sociologist working in public health. My research interests are in youth drug use, harm reduction approaches to substance use, and drug policy reform.
I am known for tobacco and cannabis research with youth, and for my role on the Canadian television series Degrassi Junior High.
I was born and raised in downtown Toronto and have lived in Montreal, Saskatoon, and Vancouver.
