My role as a lab instructor stems from an eclectic background in psychology and health research. I graduated from the Psychology Department at Mount Allison in 2013 and, alongside the completion of two directed studies in Aging research, I completed my Honour’s thesis in human sexuality under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Dawn Hamilton. Our research examining pornography use in young adults was published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy in 2017. Following my undergraduate degree, I worked for several years as a research assistant and coordinator at the University of Ottawa in the Department of Family Medicine. Upon returning to New Brunswick, I worked as a clinical administrator in sleep medicine and as a patient coordinator in biologic pharmaceuticals. My recent return to Mount Allison as a lab instructor allows me to provide support to the professors in the department while teaching students valuable skills in applied psychological research.
