My research looks at the relationship between mentorship and the healthy development of girls and women in sport. Specifically, I am interested in mentorship's role in the positive youth development of girl athletes and how mentorship can be used as an intervention to enhance girls' performance, participation and personal development in sport and physical activity-based contexts.
