I am originally from Calgary, Canada and a graduate of University of Calgary’s Faculty of Kinesiology (ranked top sport science school in North America), where I completed both a BSc and MSc in Mind Sciences and Sport Psychology. I went on to work as a community events & marketing manager with Vancouver, Canada headquartered yoga apparel company Lululemon, where I realized how fun it could be to combine my passion for sport and wellness with business and marketing.

I went on to pursue a PhD in Marketing at the University of Melbourne and called Australia home for almost 6 years. After completing my doctorate in 2014 I worked as a Lecturer at the University of Melbourne before making the move ‘across the ditch’ in 2016.

I am now a Senior Lecturer in Marketing at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand, honourary kiwi and permanent resident of this beautiful country!

Between January and July 2019 I held visiting positions at the University of Melbourne in Australia, the University of Lethbridge (as Burn’s Visiting Fellow Scholar on the Calgary campus) and the University of Victoria both in Western Canada during my Research and Study Leave.
