Brief Biography: 

I am a community wellness manager for the South Cariboo region of British Columbia. I was hired following an unprecedented wildfire season in 2017 to help develop resiliency and improve mental wellbeing in the area. Our region was significantly impacted with nearly 2.5 million acres scorched, over 65,000 people displaced and hundreds of homes/businesses destroyed. I am also a research consultant for United Way and interested in research to help improve resiliency moving forward.
