Community Service

I have been actively involved in the Mi’kmaq community since the late 1990s, when my Indigenous ancestry became known after years of community and familial suppression stemming from histories of discrimination, exclusion, and erasure on the island of Newfoundland.

My personal and professional involvement within the urban Indigenous community of Tkaronto has been one of many gifts. To learn and grow with a group of people who have rich lived experiences within a space where you do not only listen but where you are also heard. From Indigenous Board of Directors to ceremonies, or community events, my continued involvement with the urban Indigenous community of Tkaronto has encompassed relations to reciprocity, inclusion, and respect.

Local and National Committees

Doctoral Research 

My doctoral studies have allowed me to expand my web of relations to include the Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Cayuga, Onondaga, and Tuscarora nations of Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte of Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. Furthermore, the Michi Saagiig (Mississauga Anishinaabeg) of Curve Lake First Nation. The relations are not static but are continually expanding and developing, and it is without a doubt that my involvement within the Department of Social Work will depend on furthering these relations with the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabeg.
