Civil Roster Mediator Details

N/A
I specialize in providing policy development, governance and dispute resolution services to Indigenous peoples, communities and Nations.
As Vice President of Castlemain's Governance & Policy practice area, I assist Indigenous communities and Nation to manage complex decision-making processes and develop the necessary policies and tools that support proactive, coordinated and effective governance. This work has included supporting large scale decision-making processes that advance self-governance and self-determination, to designing and implementing community engagement processes that reduce conflict around key issues within communities. I am proud to have partnered with dozens of communities across Canada to advance their policy and Nation-building goals.

Prior to joining Castlemain in 2012, I worked as an Evaluation Analyst at Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada where I supported departmental evaluations of policies related to comprehensive lands claims and self-government agreements.

In addition to my work with Indigenous communities, I have experience mediating civil disputes including small claims and employment matters.

I hold a BA in Political Science from the University of British Columbia and a MA in Dispute Resolution from the University of Victoria.
