She works alongside Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, and provides independent advice and support to the Ministry of Health on Indigenous health issues. In support of the ministry’s strategic agenda she works in meaningful partnership with Indigenous – First Nations, Inuit, Métis – collectives, communities and organizations to advance wellness and disrupt colonial practices and policies.
