Janine Olthuis
Dr. Olthuis is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of New Brunswick (Canada). She earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Dalhousie University and is a licensed Clinical Psychologist. Though born and raised in Canada, Janine is a past NCAA student-athlete in soccer (Smith College) and received a Postgraduate Scholarship from the NCAA for her graduate studies. Janine has been involved in alcohol use research among university students, with a particular focus on student-athletes, since her own undergraduate years. Now back in Canada, she is particularly interested in better understanding the differences in the university athlete culture between Canada and the US and how these differences impact student-athlete drinking. In her other research, she works to increase access to mental health treatments, in part by better understanding how physical activity can serve as an effective intervention for anxiety.
