Introducing myself and my journal: Local to Global to Local

About Me:
I have 25 years experience providing front-line advocacy support to First Nation, Inuit, Metis and other visible minority women and their families living in northern, remote communities. I have been Executive Director of the Centre for Northern Families, a family resource centre located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories Canada for more than 20 years. The Centre offers a broad range of services that support multi-stressed and marginalized families. I am well known across the North as an advocate for social change and I am a founding partner in the development of therapeutic programs and in-home family support services designed to support families recovering from trauma related to colonization and ongoing violence. My passion stems from my own experiential recovery from trauma related to childhood abuse. I was awarded the Order of Canada for my work through the family resource centre in the North in 2009.
