Her experience has spanned the country as manager of national campaigns dedicated to reconciliation and working on Canada’s largest major energy projects. She specializes in community engagement, communications, and influencing organizational inclusion of Indigenous world view. She is currently based in Kitimat as Stakeholder Relations Lead with LNG Canada, the largest private investment infrastructure project in Canada’s history.
