I am a health professions education scientist with a particular interest in understanding what health professionals do in the face of "indeterminate zones of practice": how they create knowledge in practice, and how their knowledge and practice interact with structural and social forces. I aim to explicate these otherwise overlooked aspects of knowledge and practice toward informing health professions education and systems of care and practice. I formerly practiced as an educational audiologist and maintain my professional licensure as a clinical audiologist as well as focus my program of research in a pediatric integrated care context. I enjoy facilitating workshops, engaging in dialogue, and presenting on the topics listed below.

Research Foci: epistemologies of practice, reflective practice, integrated care for children with disabilities
Research Approaches: constructivist grounded theory, institutional ethnography, critical social inquiry
