I am a proud Anishinaabe woman from Neyaashiinigmiing, Ontario. I completed my Education degree in April 2017. I am currently completing my first year in the Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance program. Before returning back for my masters, I was honoured to work for Seven Oaks School Division, as well as Red River College and I have enjoyed working in a variety of capacities supporting the Indigenous community through social services and community organizations.

My proposed Master’s research is designed to pilot test and develop Indigenous land-based high school level Indigenous food systems-focused curriculum in Garden Hill First Nations (GHFN) in Northern Manitoba by building on Indigenous food knowledge and a participatory community-based approach.
