District Indigenization Coordinator


Tansi! My name is Danica and my mother gives me Cree ancestry from Peguis First Nation. I also have mixed European ancestry. I work as the District Indigenization Coordinator for School District 8. I was born and raised in Nelson, BC as a visitor in this beautiful territory. I am a proud graduate of LV Rogers in which I participated in the Aboriginal Education programs. I then went on to study at the University of Victoria where I completed a Bachelor of Social Work and the University of Lethbridge where I completed a Master of Counselling. I am the mama of a baby boy and am passionate about my culture, health and wellness, physical activity (particularly triathlon), and psychology.
