Is a Social Gerontologist whose research interests include health and aging, dementia, relational care, health and social care policy, technology and aging, critical, and environmental gerontology.

She has studied, taught, and worked across a range of settings—hospital, long-term care and in the community. These experiences provide a strong basis for her ongoing commitment to social care approaches that focus on abilities and create opportunities for innovation and growth. Her work seeks to support and build more inclusive communities that enable all members, including older adults and those who live with dementia, to thrive.
