I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University. I come from an interdisciplinary background in history and the humanities, with a specialization in public history, enviro-humanities and a professional artistic practice where I develop bodies of work based in themes like ecofeminism. After completing my Master’s degree in 2005, I developed my professional arts practice while embarking on a wide-ranging administrative career. I returned to graduate studies to pursue a PhD in 2018, driven by a passion for the visual culture of the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula and its role in our changing relationships with the land.
