OHEA continues to grow with new PHEcs with diverse interests and backgrounds, including our newest three, Rebecca Horne, Kate Rollings & Adrienne Kester (not pictured)
Rebecca received her MSc in Family Sciences from the University of Alberta in 2017 and is currently a PhD student in Psychology at the University of Toronto. Her broad area of research is on couple relationships and the individual, relational, and contextual factors that contribute to satisfying intimate ties and lasting love. Under this general area of interest, she is currently exploring how making sacrifices for an intimate partner impacts relationship functioning and how gender dynamics shape couple processes.
Kate is a recent graduate of Brescia University College. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with an Honors Specialization in Family Studies (Human Ecology). She is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Education at Western University, with a focus on teaching Family Studies and Social Sciences course at the secondary level. Kate is excited to begin her career as a teacher and a PHEc, as well as to join the OHEA community!
