As many of you may or may not know, aside from all my advocacy, leadership programs and coaching, I am also a research assistant at the University of Alberta. I work in the Social Support Research Program with Dr. Miriam Stewart developing online peer support programs for families living with asthma and allergies. I started with Dr. Stewart’s team back in 2008 when I was a mentor in their very first online program and have remained extremely involved ever since. These programs are a very large part of my life and I stand behind them.

Through my involvement in research I joined the AllerGen Students & New Professionals Network (ASNPN), in 2010. As a trainee, I attend regular symposiums for career and professional development. This year they have their first annual Video Competition and I have entered a 3 minute animated video about my research.

I need all the votes I can get to win this competition, so please watch my video  and vote for it by “liking” the video!

Thank you all for your support, it means the world to me!

Best,
