I worked with Drs. Poulin and Gouliquer for my Basic Research course on the home care for elder elders project. I thematically coded for elder’s experiences of health and home care. After coding for this project generally, I focused more specifically on how family support for the older person getting health care manifested itself throughout the interviews. My final report focused on the delivery of care and the governing policies around this delivery.

I also did a lot of transcription for the P-SEC team; I worked, both on a full-time and a part-time basis, between January of 2011 and the Summer of 2013. I was involved in transcribing for various research projects such as women’s experiences as firefighters, women’s experiences as correctional officers, women’s experiences in public space, elders’ experiences of health and home care, elder elders’ (90+) daily experiences, women’s childbirth experiences, and single mother’s experiences living on assistance.

Since my time working with Drs. Poulin and Gouliquer, I have completed my Bachelor of Social Work degree from St. Thomas University in Fredericton, NB. Following the completion of this program, I spent 1.5 years working as a child protection social worker in Miramichi, NB. More recently, I have returned home, where I currently work as an addictions and mental health social worker in Oromocto, NB.
