I hold a Ph.D. in Educational Studies from the University of British Columbia, and an M.A. in Policy and Administration from the University of Calgary, as well as a B.Sc. and B.Ed. from Lakehead University. I have worked for over 10 years in economic development across BC, primarily in the Kootenay region. My research interests include regional economic development, the role of community capacity in rural development, and community sustainability indicators, planning and implementation. My commitment to rural revitalization and strategic decision-making as a fundamental ingredient to planning for positive change is evidenced by an impressive track record of rural research and dissemination.
