  • Teaching and Learning, Mental Health, Foundations of Nursing Practice

I have nursing experience in acute and community psychiatry, and community and public health.  It was my work in Harm Reduction on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver that led me to a job as Policy Advisor with the SRNA (now CRNS) where we developed the first nursing position statement from a Canadian regulatory body on Harm Reduction. While at the SRNA I also worked as a Nursing Consultant with the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA). Where I visited Indonesia working with the Indonesian National Nurses Association (INNA) on regulatory advocacy for the profession of nursing. During my Master of Nursing degree I completed a Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) Governance Internship in Nairobi, Kenya.  I have been teaching since 2011, exploring nursing practice as individual care and addressing social structures that create health inequities.  My hope is to support safe spaces for learning, where students bring all of who they are to their education and practice. In addition to teaching, I am a health professional speaker with the Schizophrenia Society of Saskatchewan Partnership Program.
