I have spent my academic career studying and researching the socio-cultural relationships between sport and society – including the various ways in which social structures shape our experiences of sport. I am particularly interested in sport in rural, remote, and isolated communities, the Indigenous Sport Sector, and sport in marginalized and hard-to-service communities. My Doctorate in Sociology (Simon Fraser University) examined organized youth sport in remote and rural communities in BC through the lived experiences of young children and their families.
