I have been an instructor at Capilano University since 1997. I teach in the Geography Department and in the Liberal Studies BA.
My teaching focus is in areas of environmental geography, natural hazards, climate change, earth sciences and meteorology. I co-teach a course called Approaching Knowledge for the Liberal Studies BA in addition to being a tutorial advisor for several students.
I am a member of the EarthWorks collective on campus which organizes a lecture series and campus stewardship events aimed at educating about environmental issues and providing hands-on activities for students.
I am currently contributing to the development of a BA in Environmental Studies and a minor in Environmental Stewardship. Decolonizing and indigenizing teaching and learning is very important to me and I am working on a project supporting and facilitating indigenizing practices on campus.
