Background

I was born and raised in St-Augustin de Desmaures, on the traditional territory Nionwentsïo. I am a guest on the land of the Yellowknife Dene First Nations People, Chief Drygeese Territory. My family and I arrived in August (2021). I am very much looking forward to listening, learning, thinking, working, and collaborating with you.

Education

BsN (Université Laval), MScN (Université de Montréal), PhD (c) (Université de Montréal)

Career

I started as an ER nurse in 2004 and have been working at Aurora College/Aurora Research Institute since August 2021 as a researcher and instructor.

Interests

My primary interests center around collaboration and innovation within the healthcare and social service sectors in transitional contexts. I joined CANE as global environmental changes have a significant impact on our planet and health. I am particularly interested in the work of care in daily clinical practice, focusing on the ways humans interact with each other in situations of vulnerability, illness, and disease – often during the most critical moments of their lives. Care, in my view, is a complex process that involves multiple relationships, actors, knowledge, cultures, and power dynamics within a sociopolitical and historical context.
