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 working as part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers on a three-year project that will address the unique vulnerabilities faced by migrant workers in the Okanagan by implementing a multi-sectoral model of support. 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.
