I am a scholar of environment and health. I work part time with the Canadian Community of Practice in Ecosystem Approaches to Health (CoPEH-Canada) as Director of programs and am a research professional at the Université du Québec à Montréal.
I moved to the Ecuadorian Amazon with my family in 2016. My husband and I work with an international NGO, Amazon Frontlines, and an association of four indigenous communities, the Ceibo Alliance, to help protect their ancestral lands. I was scientific advisor to the team, write scientific blogs related to health and spearheaded their biomonitoring initiative.
Here is an example of one of my published articles.
I also volunteer with a group called Mère au Front (Mothers step in) on climate issues. I love to practice and teach yoga. I also love to travel and luckily so do my husband, Nicolas, and, my three kids. I started writing fiction two years ago, got carried away and now have a collection of short stories entitled ‘The Year in Eight Parts.’<--- Go Back To Authors List
