As Long As I Breathe, I hope.

Services Offered

"My particular area of interest and experience is in the development of projects founded on and commensurate with Indigenous research practices and principles.

I am not of Aboriginal or Metis descent but have worked extensively with the First Peoples of Canada. I am also concerned with research that is transformative for those engaging with a project and the use of research as a means to achieve some outcome for social justice.

Most recently I have been involved in projects relating to violence in the workplace and the associated stress and burnout. This is an area that is so important and worthwhile in which I provide useful expertise."
