Her primary focus is on assisting Aboriginal communities in identifying and addressing health and social issues that have a negative impact on children and their families. She has an extensive experience with committee work, including the Aboriginal Healing Foundation (Treasurer), the Canadian Institute of Health Research Standing Ethics Committee and the Health Canada/Public Health Agency of Canada Research Ethics Board.

Her most recent research coordinator experience includes working with CIETcanada leading the Aboriginal Community Resilience to AIDS and other blood-borne viruses (seven years) and Pavement Stories – Life on the streets after 40.
