Sheila joined OCRC after completing her Master’s degree in occupational and environmental hygiene at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. It was at UBC that she completed projects on exposure assessments, risk assessments, hazard identification and analysis and in particular, occupational exposure to solar UV radiation. Sheila completed her graduate co-op project at a uranium mine in Saskatchewan.
She is currently working with OCRC on a variety of qualitative studies, including an occupational sun exposure study, a project on facilitating the process of applying for workers' compensation for people with mesothelioma (Making the Link), and an investigation of how the awareness of occupational health hazards affects behavior.
