I am a critical scholar committed to the transformation of long-term dementia care so it is more humanistic and socially just. I draw on the arts (e.g. music, dance, improvisational play) to enrich the lives of people living with dementia. I also create research-based dramas to challenge structural violence in dementia care settings and to foster relational caring. I have presented and published across multiple disciplines on embodiment, relationality, ethics, and dementia.
