I am passionate about exploring how gender and sexual diversity impact the provision of reproductive health care and the freedom to exercise reproductive rights. With a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Midwifery and a Masters of Gender and Social Justice, my previous research examined how midwives provide inclusive care to 2SLGBTQIA+ families. I am looking forward to continuing such research as a PhD student here at Queen's!
