Undergraduate Degree: Bachelors of Health Sciences in Public Health
MSc Thesis Research: My thesis research examines housing discrimination as an upstream determinant of Indigenous health, with a specific focus on the impacts of these experiences on mental health and educational attainment. The quantitative and qualitative data I am using for my analysis is derived from a CIHR-funded project led by my supervisor, Dr. Cheryl Currie. I am also completing a scoping review on housing as a determinant of Indigenous health as part of my MSc thesis studies.
Career Goals: I am currently the Team Lead for a Housing First program called River House which provides housing and health supports for men who have experienced chronic problems with homelessness. I will use this front line work experience, combined with my MSc thesis studies, to broaden my expertise in housing, homelessness, and its impacts on public health.
