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 on amplifying the lived experiences and voices of people who use drugs and/or who live with mental health challenges.
I am most well 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.
