Assistant Professor, Department of Recreation & Leisure Studies, University of Waterloo
Kimberly critically examines social structures that reinforce difference and marginalisation. As a community-engaged qualitative scholar, she values working collaboratively and creatively to know more about: leisure and self-care in caring work, invisibility in caring labour, aging well in long-term care homes, leisure in and through helping professions, and digital leisure technologies. With a background in facilitating inclusive leisure and recreation experiences, she is committed to social change through transformational inquiry, inclusive organisation, advocacy, and activism.
