Experience in LGBT2SQ research

I am a primary healthcare nurse practitioner and clinical lead of a gender-affirming care program in Brampton Ontario. I work as a clinician, educator and researcher. My research focuses on exploring the barriers and facilitators to accessing gender affirming care. As a primary care NP I can help address this need, and as an educator I can help provide new NPs with the knowledge and skill to provide this care as they enter into practice.

I have led multiple funded studies exploring access to a variety of primary care services for transgender and non-binary individuals using multiple methodologies.
