After 18 years as a social worker, counsellor and alternative educator in southern Canada, I moved to Canada's Arctic. For 15 years I then taught counselling skills, psychology and special education in Nunavut Arctic College's Social Work and Teacher Education programs, to Inuit students. I moved to my present position in Ottawa 3 years ago but continue to have a home and husband in Nunavut. My academic background includes sociology, psychology, education, and a PhD in counselling, with a focus on multicultural counselling and Inuit. I live a multicultural life as a Finnish-born Canadian with a Jamaican husband and a work immersion in Inuit issues. My interests include research that focuses on evidence-based "what works".
