After completing an undergraduate education in physical education at Sydney University, Australia, Dr. Faulkner went backpacking and spent 10 years in England studying and working in mental health services and then higher education.

After completing a PhD in exercise psychology in 2001 at Loughborough University, U.K., Dr. Faulkner worked for three years as director of the Exercise and Sport Psychology Unit at the University of Exeter in England. Eager to see more of the Commonwealth, Dr. Faulkner moved to Canada in August 2003.

* mediated health messages; and
