PROFILE: I completed my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science, minor in Psychology at Concordia University, Montreal. I discovered my passion to work with children having worked as a camp counselor, daycare educator, after school care supervisor, field hockey coach and science outreach volunteer with children and youth of all ages.

As a strong advocate of physical activity for overall health promotion, I moved to Ottawa to pursue both my MSc and PhD in the School of Human Kinetics, specializing in exercise physiology at the University of Ottawa. Under the supervision of Drs. Denis Prud'homme and Glen Kenny. I worked on a large randomized controlled trial entitled the Healthy Eating Aerobic and Resistance Training in Youth (HEARTY) study alongside principal investigator Dr. Ronald J. Sigal. My MSc and PhD research focused on the effects of aerobic and resistance exercise training on the cardiometabolic health of adolescents with obesity. This year, I am embarking on a new research adventure at the University of Calgary- an interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship addressing weight bias in the health and education sectors.

As a proud 2009 Bootcamp graduate and strong advocate for all things CON, I urge new trainees to get involved in their local university CON-SNP chapters. Having co-chaired the 2nd Canadian Obesity Student Meeting in Ottawa, and my experience as the Events Coordinator of the National CON-SNP Executive (2012-2013), I recognize the importance of networking and hope that many more trainees will benefit from the vast array of professional development opportunities available with CON.

I am very honored to be Chair of the 2013-2014 National CON-SNP Executive and am excited for yet another successful year. I look forward to meeting many more of you!
