I’ve been with Lakehead since 2009; initially at the Thunder Bay campus but moved to Simcoe County in 2019. My passion lies in community-based research. I started as a consultant and community-based researcher and have worked on projects with the Urban Aboriginal Task Force, Thunder Bay Police Services, and the Thunder Bay Indian Friendship Centre among many. I am a member of Biigtigong Nishnaabeg First Nation through marriage.
