My primary research interest is focused on improving stroke survivorship, in particular:

  1. Reducing health inequities/disparities among stroke survivors and stroke care
  2. Improving outcomes and quality of life for stroke survivors and families/caregivers
  • 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.

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