Jaimie is a PhD Candidate in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Calgary. Her research examines the connections between adversity, chronic pain, and mental health in parents and their children. She hopes to identify both risk and resiliency factors that can be addressed in interventions to improve the outcomes of families living with chronic pain.
Her Master’s research examined adverse childhood experiences among parents of youth with chronic pain including their prevalence and association with the physical and mental health of parents and their children. Her doctoral research will continue to examine the role of parent chronic pain and mental health in pediatric chronic pain, with a specific focus on identifying factors that predict resilient outcomes in these families.
Jaimie grew up in Victoria and moved to the other coast to complete her BA (Hons) in Psychology at Dalhousie University in Halifax. After graduating, she worked in the Centre for Pediatric Pain Research with Dr. Christine Chambers before relocating to sunny Calgary to join the PEAK Research Lab.
