I received my PhD in developmental psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2009. I completed my BEd with primary/junior qualification from the University of Western Ontario in 1990, following completion of a BA in Psychology with a minor in Physical Education from Wilfrid Laurier University in 1987.
Since joining Laurier, I have taught courses in both graduate and undergraduate programs in both the Department of Psychology and the Faculty of Education. Prior to my graduate education, I taught for almost a decade as an elementary teacher for the Waterloo Region District School Board in Kindergarten to Grade 6.
I intermittently have paid or volunteer research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students interested in digital technologies and education. Students who are interested in gaining experience in research in my areas of expertise are invited to contact me to discuss possible roles in our research lab.
