I am a College Professor teaching in the Department of Sociology at Okanagan College in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I have a Ph.D. in Sociology, with a specialization in Political Economy from Carleton University. Other areas of specialization are Labour Studies and Medical Sociology. I received an M.A. in Social Justice and Equity Studies from Brock University and my B.A. in Applied Psychology from Bishop's University.
My main teaching areas are Introductory Sociology and Social Research Methods. My pedagogy is learner-centered and informed by the tenet that education has the capacity to show us who we are and how we got here. My approach to sociology, in particular, is to develop an understanding of everyday life that connects individual circumstances to broader social structures and fosters a sociological imagination capable of seeing possibilities in building future change. I believe this occurs when we are active participants in our own learning and when education is reflexive and rooted in our lived experiences.
