I am an Industrial-Organizational Psychologist, working in the Department of Psychology at the University of Windsor, in Windsor, ON, Canada.  Having lived and worked in 4 countries, my interest lies in how workplace norms are developed and maintained within the larger context of societal norms.  In other words, the question of how societal culture affects employees attitudes and behaviours is what drives my research. Most recently, I have been focusing on trust and assessments of trustworthiness in the workplace, and how cultures of trust can be created and maintained.  Much of this work has been in the context of examining how organizations can create more inclusive and equitable environments for Indigenous employees.

I am also actively working with organizations on select projects related to organizational culture and leadership development through Sycamore Consulting, Inc.
