She studied at St. Thomas University for her BA. Her major was Native Studies and Anthropology. She continued with her education to get a MA at UNB with her focus on Archaeology. A few years ago she recreated a museum exhibit at the Fredericton Region Museum called the Wabanaki Way, this inspired her to once again continue her education and is currently enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Ph.
