See what she had to say about her time at McMaster:

My time at McMaster was invaluable for gaining insight into research and building connections. It enabled me to confidently begin my job right after graduation with strong research skills that I use daily.

My time at McMaster was spent working on an independent research project with Dorothy Pawluch on how young adults living with chronic pain navigate daily experiences and build social connections. I was able to build this project into my course work of qualitative research methods, various theory courses, and health courses outside of the department.
