She works in Vancouver Island Health - Mental Health and Substance Use as a Clinical Initiatives Lead with the Strategic Clinical Network. In this work, she is currently supporting Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Mental Health programs consisting of nurses, psychiatrists, physicians, clinicians, occupational therapists, Indigenous engagement workers, addictions workers, and mental health workers with practice standards integration and data evaluation. She is also a sessional instructor with the University of Calgary, Faculty of Social Work where she teaches two online classes: IPHE 501 – Interprofessional Practice in Mental Health and IPHE 503 – Interprofessional Practice in Addictions (and Co-Occurring Disorders).
