I am an anthropologist whose work focuses on the anthropology of gender and historical archaeology. My current research focuses on self-identifying women muralists and their own impressions of their participation in public art both within a decorative context and as a form of gender expression with a focus on their access to public space. I teach Anthropology, Archaeology, and Indigenous Yukon History. From 2014 to 2018 I was the Chair of the School of Liberal Arts. Before joining Yukon University, I worked as a cultural resource management consultant throughout the Yukon, taught gender and anthropology at MacEwan University in Edmonton, and participated in various archaeological programs in British Columbia and Ecuador. I received my undergraduate and Masters degrees in Archaeology at Simon Fraser University and my PhD in Anthropology from the University of Alberta in 2012.
