I am a historian working in the Ontario Ministry of Indigenous Affairs, as well as Faculty in the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies & Indigenous Studies at Trent University (2017-21). I earned my Ph.D. and B.Ed. from OISE/University of Toronto, and my dissertation focused on Six Nations women's work in the early 20th Century. I held a SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship at Trent University in which I began research into the history of Indigenous teachers in 19th century southern Ontario, and I worked as a researcher for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. I have published articles in Indigenous, culinary and commemoration history, and I am currently the book review editor for Ontario History.
