Interest in various obesity treatments. As one of many chronic diseases, obesity does not have a quick fix or cure. As health care professionals I believe we need to look at treatments individually and synergistically and explore how these impact patient health/disease.

My research focuses on physical activity behaviour change in Canadians with physical disabilities, whether it is through sport or exercise. I also have worked as a personal trainer. My first degree (H.B.Sc.Kin) from McMaster University has exposed me to many opportunities to promote healthy lifestyles and to be engaged in a healthy lifestyle myself.
