The vision guiding my research program is to promote meaningful dignified work as essential to health and wellness.

My commitment to the fair, equitable treatment and rewards for workers has been the catalyst for my scholarship.

I employ the creative arts to reach wider audiences with research results and enhance research participants’ expressive powers.

My research is endowed with a gender-based analysis strengthened by my formal associate affiliation with the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at University of Saskatchewan.
