I am a freelance writer, researcher, and knowledge translator currently based out of Ottawa, Ontario.
In 2010, I earned my Master of Arts degree from the University of New Brunswick, majoring in English literature and creative writing. My thesis, written under the supervision of award-winning novelist and short story writer Mark Jarman, was a novel entitled Gorilla Girl.
For the past 4 years, I have worked as a researcher, knowledge translator, and data analyst on 8 nationally-funded projects. My work has appeared in Biological Research for Nursing, The Journal of Perinatal & Neonatal Nursing, and The Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, among other peer-reviewed journals.
I am currently open to working on a range of projects. To get a feel for what I do, please check out my Publications and Writing Samples pages, or feel free to contact me with any questions.
I am pleased to announce that Scientific Parenting has been picked up by Dundurn Press. Find it in a bookstore near you by Summer 2013!
I am currently working on a book-length project, tentatively titled Scientific Parenting, with University of Calgary professor Dr. Nicole Letourneau. Dr. Letourneau's areas of focus are neuroscience and parent-child attachment. Our project melds these two disciplines-- along with genetic and epigenetic theory-- into a sourcebook for parents, nurses, and students of the social sciences.
