I’m a settler scholar and teacher who currently resides on the unceded territories of the Kwantlen, Katzie, Semiahmoo, and Tsawwassen peoples. My interdisciplinary research focuses on Indigenous literary, media, and performance arts on the territories currently known as Canada. Presently, I’m working on a collaboration with members of Virago Nation that explores Indigenous women’s embodied resistance.

I’m passionate about education, and have spent the last 15 years teaching, creating, organizing, and facilitating with post-secondary institutions, arts organizations, non-profits, and community groups. Currently I am a KDocs Board member, a member of KPU’s Task Force on Anti-Racism, an affiliate of Social Justice Centre, a faculty participant in the Including All Citizens Project, and an Educational Consultant in Universal Design with the Teaching and Learning Commons. In my spare time I like to bake, practice martial arts, travel, and spend time outside.
