She worked as a Psychologist at Mount Saint Vincent University for 16 years before coming to Dalhousie Student Health and Wellness in 2014. She has spent her entire career as a Psychologist helping students navigate the sometimes bumpy road of post-secondary education using techniques from many psychological frameworks including CBT, DBT, and ACT and through the lens of a humanist/feminist perspective.
