Adult Education

University of the Fraser Valley

I am a new faculty member at the University of the Fraser Valley. I have worked in the settlement sector for many years in Vancouver. I completed my doctorate in Education at UBC, where I explored ways to make government-funded language training more inclusive for students who experience trauma. I have facilitated numerous workshops on trauma-informed practices for settlement and language providers both provincially and nationally. My research interest include:

- Mitigating structural barriers facing Adult literacy and English as an Additional Language students
- Care-based programming
- Mental health and trauma informed practices
- Settlement, refugees, and immigrant education policies and practices 
​- Citizenship and social justice
