About the researcher:
I obtained my PhD in the Indigenous Studies at Trent University in 2015. With a background in human nutrition and dietetics, I pursued my Master’s at McGill studying at the Centre for Indigenous Peoples’ Nutrition and Environment and became very interested in working with Indigenous communities in the Arctic. At Trent University, and upon the arrival of my son however, I decided to bring my research closer to home. In order to work with First Nations communities in my region, my research’s focus switched from nutrition to environmental health. My PhD dissertation examined the strengths and challenges of the realities of environmental health management and service provision in Ontario First Nations. I live a wonderfully hectic life in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, with my two young children.
