DEGREES: BA, Psychology and MSc., Clinical Psychology
CURRENTLY WORKING ON: Ph.D., Clinical Psychology
November 2012 - Present

I am a scientist, student, daughter, niece, granddaughter, sister,  friend, and self-proclaimed nerd. I am currently completing my Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Western Ontario (UWO) in London, Ontario, Canada.

My research spans two main areas. My first area of research focuses on rehabilitating individuals who have come in contact with the criminal justice system and been found "Not Criminally Responsible on Account of a Mental Disorder". My second area focuses on better understanding the relationship between depression and alcohol use. Before starting my PhD, I completed my MSc in clinical psychology at UWO and my BA at McGill University. When I am not embracing the frenetic and trying lifestyle of a student, I am reading, traveling, gardening, playing board games, or visiting with my wonderful family and friends.

My research spans from studying suicide prevention in Inuit populations around the Arctic to rehabilitation programs in psychiatric populations
