Dr. Charmayne Dubé is the newest addition to the St.Amant Research Team. She brings 27 years of experience working in the disability sector from direct service to program administration. Charmayne is trained as an Occupational Therapist and she’s no stranger to the Research Centre, having completed her PhD in Applied Health Sciences under the guidance of Dr. Bev Temple who has been with the Research Centre for many years.
Charmayne will remain half time in her current position at New Directions as Director of Services and will join the University of Manitoba part-time, with most of her role focused on the St.Amant Research Centre. She is most looking forward to having time dedicated to research and to being able to focus on what individuals labeled with disability want to know and what will make a difference to their quality of life. She is particularly interested in the topics of self-determination, natural support systems and the needs of direct support professionals.
Please join us in welcoming Charmayne to St.Amant.
