I am an âpihtaw'kos'ân (Cree-Metis) writer, beadworker, community organizer, educator, and Indigenous consultant from Treaty 8 territory in Northeast BC, the ancestral territories of the Dunne-za, Cree, and Saulteaux peoples. My family comes from Ile-a-la-Crosse (Sakitawak), SK. I am passionate about creating communities and connections based on reciprocity, care, and respect. My work is rooted in my experiences as an Indigenous woman, and is centered within a decolonial and anti-oppressive framework. I have experience in youth work, arts education, project management, web development, database management, communications, facilitation, customer service, and grassroots community organizing. I am people oriented and have a passion for providing help and care. I am a writer and beadwork artist with a deep love of coffee and spending lazy weekends with my two cats, Betty and Jughead. A Family of Dreamers, my debut book of poetry published by Talonbooks, comes in fall 2023.
