Trauma informed. Survivor. Believer that everything related to health and wellness is interconnected.
Individual with knowledge and experience in the health care sector. Caregiver and advocate for Indigenous health across the continuum of care.
Key areas of interest in advocacy
Equity, diversity and inclusion. Recognizing and addressing systemic issues that prevent equity in patient care. Understanding diversity as it relates to patient care, recognizing that a one-size-fits-all approach will not work and that through inclusion we can achieve more favourable outcomes.
