I am an Inuk who was raised in Gjoa Haven, but my home is now Cambridge Bay. I work for Polar Knowledge Canada at the Canadian High Arctic Research Station as a Policy Analyst in the Knowledge Management and Engagement Team. I focus on Indigenous Engagement throughout the Yukon, NWT and Inuit Nunangat. I’m a former masters student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where I studied Arctic Policy in the Arctic and Northern Studies Program. I’m also an alumnus of the Jane Glassco Northern Fellowship with the Gordon Foundation, and the Arctic Summer College with the Us and Berlin Ecological Institutes.
