Research Interests: 

My research program focuses on the promotion of health in various populations.  Specifically, this centres around: 1) community-based health promotion in children, youth, and families from psychological and behavioural perspectives; 2) evaluating the utility of Co-Active coaching/motivational interviewing as strategies to promote health, wellness, and/or weight management in at-risk populations; and 3) theoretically grounded behaviour change interventions.
