“I am passionate about sports and the effect they can have on a community. The Kinesiology program allows me to follow my passion.”
Supervisor: Alison Jean Doherty
Why did you come to Western for your graduate degree?
I came to Western University for my graduate degree for two reasons. First, the Kinesiology program is known internationally as a reputable program. Second, the program offers an internship component that not all other universities offer.
Describe your research.
I am looking at the implications of cause related marketing in the sports realm. I am researching athletes as sports marketers and how national sport organizations can use this marketing technique to expand their sponsorship portfolios.
What’s the best advice you could give to someone considering applying to your graduate program?
The MA in Kinesiology program is more research focused than course focused, so make sure you keep on track and utilize your spare time to make connections with other students and faculty.
Do you serve on any Department, Faculty, or University committees?
I have worked for the Kinesiology grad committee as the VP of social affairs.
Have you worked as a TA or RA?
I have worked as both a TA and a RA. The most rewarding aspect of my experience as an RA was the opportunity to experience working in a research setting and conducting experiments and analyzing the outcomes of such experiments.
