I have studied, taught, and lived from coast-to-coast in Canada from Vancouver, B.C., to St. Anthony, NL, and many places in-between. I have spent most of my early career as a resource teacher, supporting students with exceptionalities from Kindergarten to Grade 12, as well as being a clinical coordinator with McMaster Children’s Hospital’s ASD School Support Program (Hamilton, ON) and tenured Associate Professor at Brock University (Niagara, ON). I am a special education specialist, a certified teacher, a registered psychologist (provisional, master's level), an associate professor and Newfoundland and Labrador’s first board certified behaviour analyst.
Recently, I have taught, researched, and served undergraduates, graduate students, and professional educators at Brock University, Fanshawe College, Western University, Nipissing University, Redeemer University, as well as schools, community agencies, conferences and parent groups. I am pleased to be teaching, researching and providing service to Memorial’s Faculty of Education focused on the Bachelor of Special Education degree program.
I am an experienced teacher, researcher, speaker, trainer, supervisor and resource developer with a strong collaborative style focused on knowledge mobilization.
My primary interests lie in disabilities and special education, with a focus on autism spectrum disorders in inclusive school environments. I also research, present and publish in the areas of emotional/behavioural disorders, problem behaviour, applied behaviour analysis, assistive technology, inclusive school leadership and the early years.
One of my greatest joys in the professorship role is mentoring graduate students in research, writing, presentations and publications, and I provide my graduate students with many opportunities to research, write, present and publish.
I am accepting new graduate students as of September 2020.
