Over the past 17 years, I have facilitated over 450 projects with public sector organizations and non-profits across the province and abroad. My projects have ranged from leading strategy and change management sessions with executive teams throughout the provincial government; to supporting the Mayor’s Taskforce to Eliminate Poverty in Edmonton; to facilitating action labs to prototype and test social policies; to leading large-scale public participation processes on topics such as the opioid epidemic, suicide prevention, and affordable housing and homelessness.
I recently completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship (2022) with the Evaluation Capacity Network where I supported several initiatives to increase the ability of nonprofits to use and conduct evaluation.
In 2016, I was part of a select cohort of change-makers from across Canada who attended a social innovation residency at the Banff Centre. As a follow-up, I sparked the development of Eval Lab—a co-learning space for nonprofit leaders to explore, test, and apply evaluation-based concepts in ‘real-life’ settings.
I have a PhD in Anthropology from the University of Alberta as well as a MSc in Public Health. Over the past several years, I have enriched my practice by using participatory photography, digital storytelling, and arts-based methods to enhance dialogue and deliberation.
