Biography

As the Assistant Dean for Prince Albert & North, I'd like to welcome you to the College of Nursing Prince Albert Campus, one of the University's six provincial College of Nursing sites. At our campus, students learn interactively through easy accessibility to our professors and state of the art video and web-conferencing technology connecting nursing students and academic health science colleges across the province. In addition, the campus hosts numerous student break-out rooms, staff and faculty offices, boardrooms, and a clinical practice simulation lab.

My prior administrative and care roles within rural communities and long term care settings include program development and evaluation, interdisciplinary team facilitation, quality improvement and regionalized health system accreditation. My Master of Nursing was completed at the University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing and I completed my doctoral studies at the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing at Western in London, Ontario.

I am experienced in both quantitative and qualitative research methods and have applied my research approach through post positivist, interpretive and critical research paradigms. I have coordinated a professional nursing association Canadian community health interprofessional survey, analysed Statistics Canada Population Health Databases and conducted a Cochrane Review with an interdisciplinary research team. I am currently developing social interaction knowledge translation interventions to foster evidence-informed health promotion and chronic disease management practice and policy within the fields of aging, client and family-centred care and global health. My teaching roles have focused on Community Health, Professional Nursing Practice Issues and Research at the undergraduate level, as well as Research Methods in the Master of Nursing Program.

I welcome any inquiries or interests you may have regarding my role as Assistant Dean or my areas of research. If you have any questions regarding the University of Saskatchewan Prince Albert Campus or one of our programs offered at this site, please contact (306) 765-3870.
