MSc Thesis Research: The focus of my research involved the evaluation of a brief mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR-B) intervention on the experience of stress in after-degree nursing students. Participants received training in the practices of sitting meditation, body scan, and yoga, which was modified from John Kabat-Zinn's 27.5-hour MBSR program. After eight hours of training, participants practiced the techniques 30 minutes daily for 30 days. Qualitative interviews then generated data used to understand participants' experiences of both the intervention and its effects on their experience of stress. Given the high levels of stress among nursing students, and in particular after-degree students, I wanted to provide a way of managing stress and promote wellness within this group. By enhancing their self-care practices, future registered nurses may be better able to provide optimal care for their clients.

Career Goals: I am currently an instructor in the Faculty of Health Sciences (Nursing) at the University of Lethbridge. My passion for teaching lead me to work as a Public Health Nurse from 2001-2012, after which I began my work as a nursing instructor. My aspirations include further developing my skills as an instructor while incorporating elements of health promotion related to self-care in my student groups.
