I am an anthropologist, researcher, activist, mother, lifelong learner, and teacher. I graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master of Arts in Socio-Political Anthropology in 2009. Since moving back to the Okanagan, I have been active in the migrant justice movement, both as a researcher and community activist. I am currently part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers on an ethnoarchaeological project in Saltillo, Mexico. This project will consider the social and cultural experiences of war and conflict on a people’s identity and historical memory from the time of the Mexican-American war to the present day. I have authored and co-authored a number of publications on migrant agricultural issues and have carried out ethnographic research on migrant agricultural workers' resistance, reproductive justice, and their networks of support. I have been teaching at Okanagan College's Vernon and Salmon Arm campuses since 2013.
