Expert in economic reconciliation in Canada.
Why change matters.
My Journey has been decades of struggle with addiction and mental health after abusive childhood. I have been lucky enough to be sober since 2011.
I have volunteered on the front line and have seen the effects of mental health on the most vulnerable. Out of this was part of a group that created $200MM mental health funding. Later I supported the creation of legislation enshrining First Responder Training and Overdose Prevention. This year, I co-authored a free book helping leaders with the Psychological Effects of COVID.
I have worked in First Nation communities, have seen the effects of multi-generational trauma, have helped to build a Foodbank, Community Centres, Economic and Employment Opportunities for Indigenous Peoples.
I want to work with you to effect positive change.
