MA, RPP, MCIP
I am an environmental planner with 23 years’ experience in public and indigenous consultation, environmental assessment and regional planning. I provide consulting services primarily to Indigenous communities and organizations to foster positive relationships between Indigenous people, governments and industry. I strongly believe that all Canadians have a role to play in creating a future where Indigenous and other Canadians are reconciled. Through my work, I hope that this reconciliation process is honoured. To date, I’ve served many First Nations communities primarily in northern Ontario in building management capacity in strategic natural resource management and environmental assessment...

Senior Research & Planning Associate
In June 2018, I was thrilled to become a member of the Odonaterra team as a Senior Research & Planning Associate. Having worked with local communities, Indigenous communities and rights organizations, as well as environmental committees for the past 15 years, I wanted to be able to apply my research skills, as well as contribute to the right kind of company-a company working in a progressive way, that prioritizes community needs, visions, and capacity-building. Odonaterra fit that bill.
Indigenous Lands & Consultation Specialist
I am a member of Dokis First Nation and bring 8 years of experience working for my First Nation in a broad range of areas including community consultation, economic development, fisheries and species at risk monitoring, environmental assessment, geographic information systems, and forestry planning. My work is grounded by my Anishnawbe culture, my reverence for my ancestors, and my active use of my traditional territory. In addition to my role at Odonaterra, I will be working in partnership with Nipissing University on historical research in relation to the Robinson-Huron Treaty (1850) and assisting with the repatriation of indigenous artifacts.
