I am from Nain, Nunatsiavut and grew up in a remote, Inuit community. I have a BA in Psychology, Bachelor of Nursing, and a Master of Nursing. I became more involved in systemic issues during a summer job working with the Nunatsiavut Government (NG) on food security in the region. Through that experience I became more familiar with what different barriers mean for the overall health of Inuit. At Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), I work as a policy advisor on the Public Health File and Qanuippitaa? National Inuit Health Survey File in the Policy Advancement Division.
