I am a settler culture Canadian of Dutch ancestry who grew up in Blackfoot territory. Having moved to the West Coast for graduate school in 2009, I am grateful for the welcome and hospitality of the Coast Salish peoples. In all my work, play, and study, I seek to acknowledge and honour the Indigenous peoples’ upon whose beautiful and unceded lands I am a guest.
My scholarship focuses on the intersection between colonialism, research ethics, and violence against women in the context of complex health interventions in Canada. An avid skier and sailor, I am most at home on the ocean or in the mountains.
