Summary:Since joining the Division of Urogynecology in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology , FOMD in 1999, I have developed our research portfolio such that we know have national and international recognition. I was the resident research coordinator for 16 years mentoring our first CIP residents towards successful completion of their Masters degrees. Throughout my career I have had a passion for scholarly activity, particularly as it relates to innovations in clinical care and quality improvement. I have been proud to be part of research work that has led to positive changes to clinical flow and care provision, with direct knowledge translation. This has included: active involvement in multicenter national and international trials; collaborations with colorectal surgery, urology, geriatrics and pharmacy (see U of A signature proposal); and work within the Surgical Strategic Clinical Network. I am a proud member of the Women's and Children's Health Research Institute since its inception. My research passions relate to quality improvement, innovative models of care delivery, and access to care for marginalized and vulnerable populations. I also thrive working in of research teams.
