For a one-year period, Community Scholars work with MAP scientists, staff and students, and others at Unity Health Toronto to develop a full-time, independent program of research.

She has a Masters degree in Environmental Studies focusing on the experiences of people who use drugs with mandated drug treatment. She has served as a member of the provincial Opioid Task Force as well as the Toronto Overdose Prevention Society, the Toronto Drug Strategy Implementation Panel, and many other committees.
