Following this experience, she began her journey in researching abuse in sport which has included a focus on emotional abuse, Canadian athletes’ experiences of abuse, and prevention/intervention initiatives. Her work has also expanded as an advocate, and she was recently appointed the President of AthletesCAN, a formal advocacy organization focusing on the rights of Canadian athletes.
