I am a proud Red River Métis as it is a culture that portrays and honours strong women. I was born and raised in the small town of St.Eustache, Manitoba and am an active member of the St. Eustache Métis Local. I enjoy maintaining this connection with the community and my culture. I am creative and find comfort and calmness in creating all types of art. I take this into my classroom sharing my Métis heritage and learning with my students and colleagues.
