As a researcher, I am most interested in questions of career-life, the intersections of multiple life roles (including both paid and unpaid work), and relational contexts of career. More specifically, I am interested in the experience of mothering work as an aspect of career-life, and past research has focused on the experiences, choices and strategies of mother entrepreneurs. Drawing on my experiences as an addictions clinician, I am also interested in the intersections of career-life and addictions recovery.
A current project, funded by the Alberta Gambling Research Institute, is designed to shed light on intersections of gambling and work-life, including the experiences of individuals who engage in gambling in the workplace.
