My primary research interest is focused on implementing equitable healthcare systems and practices that reduce health inequities in stroke care, improve stroke survivorship and improve health-related outcomes for stroke survivors, family members/caregivers, by closing the gap between education, research, clinical practice and policy.

  • Towards equitable stroke care: learning from young women’s experiences – My Ph.D. research explores young women stroke survivors’ experiences accessing stroke care in British Columbia to provide practice, research and policy recommendations.

Secondary research interests include critical theory, critical pedagogy and Black nurses’ history.
