Starting with a brief career and college education in rehabilitative therapy, I've continued to explore the ways that our environment affects our health. I have a B.A. in Health Sciences from SFU. I've worked in public health and epidemiology, and paediatric clinical research. I'm currently working at the intersection of building science and environmental health in the building science industry, with the goal of adding to the momentum around indoor environmental quality issues and bridging the divide between public health and epidemiology, and building science.
I'm a recent graduate of the MPH in Environmental Health. My MPH research focused on moisture and microbial growth in drywall, and occupant understandings of their home environment. I'm currently working at RDH Building Science Laboratories.
