I am a full-time Faculty member within the Faculty of Education at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) in Fredericton. I serve as a counsellor educator; researcher; academic advisor; and as a supervisor and committee member for learners during their graduate and doctoral studies.
My research is committed to the Wolastoqey teaching of piluwitahasuwawsuwakon (actions toward truth and reconciliation) in counsellor education and practice, counsellor self-care, Etuaptmumk (Mi’kmaw guiding principle of Two-Eyed Seeing), Indigenous knowledges and methodologies, mindfulness-based practices, spirituality, and wholistic well-being.
I have a preference for preforming research utilizing collaborative approaches. I also have a passion for research projects that seek to increase and improve accessibility to culturally responsive counselling services for diverse and marginalized individuals and groups, and outcomes that are focused on transformation and change. My research team and I have received funding for research from the following sources such as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC): Joseph Armand Bombardier award (for my doctoral studies); New Brunswick Innovation Funding (NBIF); and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) funding.
