I am an MA student under the supervision of Dr. Duncan McLaren and Dr. Tommy Happynook. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to live play and learn on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen, Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSÁNEC peoples.

I completed a BA in Archaeology at Simon Fraser University in 2019 with an interest in the Pacific Northwest Coast. My practical experience in archaeology comes from working across British Columbia as a consulting archaeologist since 2018. Through the world of CRM, I have been fortunate enough to learn from and work alongside many Indigenous individuals and groups.

My research focuses on archaeological evidence of human occupation at caa-caa-tsii-as (also known as Carnation Creek), the traditional land of the Happynook family. My work is being conducted at the request of Dr. Tommy Happynook, and with the support of the Huu-ay-aht chief and council.
