I am an education consultant, supporting professional learning opportunities in the areas of Indigenous education and anti-racism.
My professional experience includes over 20 years teaching in both K-12 and post-secondary education, working as a Faculty Associate in SFU’s Teacher Education Program, an Advisor with the BC Ministry of Education, and a Policy Analyst, then Curriculum Manager, for the First Nations Education Steering Committee.
Over the past two decades, I has also been actively involved in the areas of curriculum development and resource writing, professional learning through inquiry networks, literacy development, and Indigenous education. I was also involved in various aspects of transformation in the BC education system, and also managed the development of authentic First Peoples teacher resources.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from SFU, a Diploma in Education in Guidance Studies, and Master’s Degree in Educational Technology from the UBC, and am passionate about helping create systemic change in education systems to support truly inclusive and responsive, strength-based education experiences for all learners.
the words i use to describe myself become my story…so i choose thoughtfully…for the stories we tell about ourselves are powerful shapers
i am a daughter, sister, friend, traveller, educator, philosopher, adventurer, and spouse. i am of ts’msyen (kitsumkalum first nation) and european heritage, and am a two-spirited woman continually challenging myself. i’m learning how to live fully in life, and forever struggling to live it on my terms.
i enjoy writing, travel, reading, irreverence, laughter, the ocean, fresh air, adventure, curiosity, living with intention, animals, learning, thoughtful people, words, transformation, connecting with place, spirituality, touch, living authentically, honouring, witnessing, creativity, stories, and exploring the spaces in between our word
and good coffee on a quiet morning.
