- Proposal Writing
I worked with First Nations communities (primarily in British Columbia) for over ten years and held professional roles in a variety of leadership capacities. Including working as a Funding Services Officer managing a portfolio of 20 million dollars distributed to 8 coastal communities, Strategic Planning Officer on Comprehensive Community Planning, Health Director with a budge of a million, and Program Coordinator working on reserve. In 2007/2008 I was contracted as a Research Consultant on Indian Residential Schools working on the Common Experience Payment leading up to the formal apology by the Prime Minister of Canada to First Nations Peoples of Canada.
The story of course, has unfolded to reveal more horrors of that colonial system and its policies and impacts upon our First Peoples.
The mission at this moment in time, is to support First Nations communities in raising funds to address issues and projects as identified within individual communities.
Experience includes having raised over half a million dollars in funds to support community-based projects and programs and working as a reviewer on proposals submitted to ensure their credibility. As a writer, I am naturally gifted with the ability to create visions that can be conveyed and seen within the hearts of those individuals in the funding agencies. I have a strong intuitive sense and know when a proposal is solid and ready to be submitted and will gather more details until a new dream of what is possible can be realized.
