School of Kinesiology and Health Studies, Queen’s University
I am a fourth year undergraduate student pursuing a degree in Health Studies at Queen’s University. As a work study student, I have was given the opportunity to work under the supervision of Dr Jeff Masuda as a research assistant for the RentSafe project for the 2015-2016 academic year. I very much enjoy and value the importance of placing a critical lens on health promotion to question dominant ideologies and fuel new creative thought, ideas and solutions. I am also interested in community based health promotion practices, and how accessibility and policy influence health inequities. Currently ss General Co-Director for Queen’s Health Outreach, Peer Advisor for the International Programs Office, and Volunteer Management Assistant at Youth Diversion Kingston, I can usually be found running around campus from one thing to the next while waving frantically at friends passing by! I am very excited to be able to compliment my work and interests with the opportunity to get involved with CEHE and the RentSafe project. In the future, I hope to pursue a degree in public health with a focus on improving health inequities within Canada.
