She is dedicated to enabling Indigenous success in STEM through the inclusion of Indigenous culture and the arts. Her work explores best practices in Canada, Australia and New Zealand to develop an inclusive, culturally responsive teaching practice and curricula through the philosophy of Bridging Cultures: Two-Eyed Seeing for Both Ways Knowing to enable Indigenous academic success.
