Dr. Roy studied Women's Studies/Liberal Studies (BA, University of Victoria), Women's Studies (MA, York University), and Adult Education (PhD, University of Toronto). While on a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) she taught at Trent University, Peterborough.

She worked as a non-formal educator with community-based educational exchanges (Tunisia, Thailand, Uruguay, various parts of India). Her interests include women/older women activists; the use of arts for social change; qualitative and arts-informed research. Her book, The Raging Grannies: Wild Hats, Cheeky Songs, and Witty Actions for a Better World (2004), was published by Black Rose Books and was selected for the 2005 Amelia Bloomer Award (Feminist Task Force of the American Library Association). She is working on a film on the Raging Grannies and is currently doing research on documentary film festivals as tools for adult education and community building, and greatly appreciates the support of a research grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
