For the past five years it has been my privilege to be a Professor and the Coordinator for Career Pathways - a program designed to meet the needs of neuro-diverse students who have experienced challenges in traditional learning environments. Each and every day that I work with student with Learning Disabilities I gain insight and learn from their strengths. Our Career Pathways team has been nominated for the President's Award each year since 2012.

Prior to this I taught politics and cultural history to media students from Broadcasting Radio, Television and Journalism here at Mohawk College. My educational background is in cultural and intellectual history and I studied at McMaster, Western University and the University of Toronto. I have presented papers at major universities including the University of Toronto, University of Pennsylvania and University of California, Berkeley. In the summer of 2017 I will present a paper on Neurodiversity in the Post-Secondary Classroom in Toronto at Ryerson University.

I enjoy meeting prospective students and encourage you to contact me to arrange a tour of the college and learn more about our program.
