Hi! Welcome to my website! I'm Alyssa 😊

I am passionate about workplace safety in my PhD studies and my personal life. This passion developed from my dad's tragic death in a workplace safety incident when I was 11 years old. If you would like to read more about my story, please visit my about page.


Through this site, I want to promote my own knowledge on safety at work that I have gained from my personal experiences and my research (see publications and research pages). Also visit my blog where I will be sharing workplace safety insights from existing research as well as my own!

If you would like to contact me directly to chat and learn more or collaborate, please fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page. Alternatively, you can contact me via email or social media (i.e., LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook).

PhD in Management

Organizational Behaviour

Smith School of Business, Queen's University

Kingston, Ontario, Canada

Supervised by Dr. Julian Barling, I will be investigating the consequences of workplace safety incidents. I plan to focus on how workplace safety incidents affect leaders, such as direct supervisors. I am particularly interested in the psychological impact these events have on leaders and how they can be supported through this.

Supervised by Dr. Julian Barling, I studied the impact of parental work injuries on children, namely how these experiences affect later leader emergence. My thesis was titled "Parents' Work Injuries and Children's Later Leader Emergence". Click here for more information on my Master's thesis.

Current Research


I am currently interested in and researching...

  • How and why safety-specific leadership behaviours develop

  • The ways in which parental work injuries during childhood impact children into adulthood and affect their work

  • The impact of personally being injured at work or having a family member (e.g., parent, spouse/partner, or child) or close friend injured at work

  • Outcomes for parents of adult children injured at work

  • Various leadership styles/types/behaviours and workplace safety outcomes (e.g., safety behaviours, injuries)

Please reach out to me if you are interested in chatting about my research to learn more or if you are interested in collaborating!
