Chapter: Calgary, Grateful or Dead

“My ancestry is both Blackfoot and Cree, and I am a proud two-spirit person. I have been involved in many communities in different sorts of capacities over the years, and I am thankful that I can play an active role as an Ally to People Who Use Drugs. As someone who has seen firsthand what addictions can do to loved ones.
I also currently sit on the Board of Directors for Calgary Pride, and I come from a background and education in Volunteer and Event Management. And ultimately I’m excited to help drive AAWEAR towards a successful, safe and positive workspace to be in.”
