Other womxn’s health projects close to her heart include Diva Day (research/liaison providing menstrual education in rural Kenya and Canada) and Hemophilia Ontario Women's programs, (advocacy for womxn with bleeding disorders). She is a former Research Assistant at the UBC Rural Surgical and Obstetrical Networks, and is currently the podcast co-host and co-developer for the Women's Health Research Cluster's newest knowledge translation initiative, "Health Interrupted" alongside Rebecca Baron, striving to catalyze improved access to womxn’s health information and equitable research via compelling storytelling and knowledge translation exchange.
