Research and Professional Interests

I am a registered dietitian with the Nova Scotia Dietetic Association (NSDA) and a member of Dietitians of Canada (DC). My contributions to both of these organizations have been acknowledged with a NSDA Honorary Lifetime Membership (2012) and a DC Fellow (FDC) Award (2013). I am a long standing member of the Journal of Dietetic Practice and Research Editorial Board and was honored in 2014 with a cover recognizing most articles published in the past 10 years. These articles were a combination of individual and collaborative practice-based research and articles co-authored with students (masters, honours or independent study students). My particular areas of interest are dietetic education and the socialization of dietetic students and practitioners, with an emerging interest in how gender is implicated in these processes. I am also interested in both arts-informed research and pedagogy.

I have been actively involved in the establishment of a bridging process for Internationally Educated Dietitians (IEDs) and the establishment of two credit courses that focus on the context and competencies associated with strengthening the cultural competence of dietitians and students arriving from other countries. These initiatives were the result of a three grants awarded by the Department of Labour & Advanced Education: International Qualification Recognition (IQR).  I have had a longstanding interest in prior learning assessment and recognition holding a grant that supported strategic planning related to the establishment of a NS PLA network (2015).
