Growing up on a farm in southern BC, I was influenced by my grandfather’s passion for northern Canada. I moved ‘north’ to Prince George and graduated with a BSc in Natural Resource Management from UNBC, then moved properly North to Inuvik in 2004. I worked with the Inuvialuit-owned branch of Golder Associates for 8 years, conducting field work across the high Arctic and learning the importance of good proposal writing, effective project execution and appropriate reporting.


After a period away, I returned to Inuvik in 2021 and worked for the Gwich’in Tribal Council as their Research and Data Management Coordinator. This role amplified my interest in both research and data management, and inspired a transition to the ARI. As the Research Grants Coordinator, my objectives will include promoting research funding opportunities for Aurora College and its associates, and organizing our research administration processes through maintaining reliable grant tracking and reporting systems.
