She has worked from grassroots, volunteer positions on many Indigenous Boards of Directors, as well as in national leadership positions such as the Director of Professional Development at the National Centre for First Nations Governance, and the National Chair for the AFN-INAC Post Secondary Education Working Group, as well as on the UNESCO Arts and Education Roundtable.
