I was born in Paradise Hill, But, I consider Edmonton, Alberta my home. I was raised in Onion Lake, located in Cree Territory on the Alberta and Saskatchewan border. I grew up learning the values and traditions in my community. I spent lots of time outdoors with my family doing numerous things - like berry picking, taking care of horses and learning about respecting the land.

I’m the mother of three beautiful children. Learning and sharing traditional teachings is a guiding principle I faithfully believe in.

I’ve worked in Edmonton for years, I also spend my time attending events supporting Indigenous peoples, concerts, pow wows, exercising in the river valley and also, attending many diverse events in the city.

Thank you for reading my book.
