Through my MSC and under the supervision of Dr. Ljubicic and Dr. Johnson, I had the opportunity to learn from Uqsuqtuurmiut as about changes to caribou sea ice habitat. I gained experience in public relations through my participation in the organizing committee for the 2018 North American Caribou Workshop Conference. Through my position with Ljubicic, I was able to work with Inuit researchers from various communities (nine communities, in person and online) and facilitate the execution of a Nunavut-wide survey concerning environmental characteristics, uses, and available services. Under the supervision of Stephan Schott, I have led the management of two projects engaging with community groups in Gjoa Haven and Taloyoak. I manage the daily activities of the polar harvest study, and have supervised five community members hired as a part of the study. In contribution to the broader FISHES project, I have co-lead the hosting of several workshops with women of all ages, Elders and active harvesters in both communities.  In the past five years, I have gained experience in managing the priorities of diverse stake-holders and identifying ways to work together to meet the goals of the communities we are accountable to.
