I teach NVivo because I believe… 

There is power in words – whether interviews, focus groups, or documents. NVivo can help you release that power.

Working with someone who has sound working knowledge of evidence gathering and analysis projects adds value and builds confidence in the learner.

NVivo is fun!


About me

For the last 20 years, I worked in academia and the health care system in all kinds of evidence projects. 

I have hands-on experience with a wide range of stakeholder groups. 

I worked for 10 years in academic research on quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods projects in a wide variety of healthcare settings and topics.
I have hands-on experience leading projects and working with a wide range of stakeholder groups. This includes vulnerable populations, Indigenous women (on and off reserve), healthcare providers, patients and family, children and youth, physicians, senior and executive leaders, and decision makers.
I have deep experience in all phases of evidence gathering and analysis. I have conducted hundreds of interviews and focus groups.
Examples of work I have led include:
  • mixed methods evaluation of a wellness network
  • environmental scans in health services settings
  • longitudinal mixed methods research studies in the areas of women’s health and primary care
  • analysis of large datasets of open-ended survey question responses

My aim … 

…to accelerate your competence with NVivo and enhance your project work – and even have a little fun along the way.
