Program Director – 

Greetings! I am honoured to live and work on Coast Salish territories as an uninvited guest. I am the daughter of Irish immigrants from Galway, (another wild west coast) in Ireland. Over the past 15 years I have been focused on community-based and driven partnerships for social and environmental justice with higher education at UVic via the former Office of Community Based research, with the Environmental Law Centre and nationally with CBRCanada and CFICE – Community Campus Engage Canada I love the focus on ecological restoration and decolonization that LLab is committed to : supporting Indigenous resurgence  as part of connecting to and healing ourselves, communities and the amazing natural world we are part of. … “Find a way to make beauty necessary, to make necessity beautiful ‘ – (Anne Michaels)​
