My work has explored the intersections of domestic violence and service provision. The Niagara Region Domestic Violence Report Card was a five year project that was internationally recognized for innovation in understanding community-based responses to domestic violence.

The Involved Fatherhood project “Give Love, Get Love” received international exposure in the media and helped to spotlight the importance of father involvement on promoting gender equality.
