Using our combined knowledge and skills, we can help minority communities through preventative and non-invasive techniques.
I have lived in rural Manitoba, Canada for more than 29 years and have witnessed firsthand the limitations of an underrepresented community. To help out, I volunteered with the Rural Manitoba Health Program. I spent ten days in an isolated rural community, helping with various medical procedures. I was directly involved with providing treatment and support to this underrepresented community.
My campus involvement
In addition to my studies, I am a Student Senate representative and head up the Bylaws Committee – ensuring that Senate is kept accountable and transparent. I also lead the Northwestern Choral group, Note-A-Chord, and I am co-prime minister of the Canadian Club. I am a member of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion committee, working on social media and publicity events.
My plans for the future
At Northwestern, we have the opportunity to become leaders and make a difference in health care. One of my goals is to bring chiropractic to the forefront of preventative and alternative medicine throughout the world.
In Canada, I see a push for medical doctors and dentists to travel to remote First Nations rural communities to provide assistance. With my firsthand experience of rural challenges, once I graduate, I would like to head back to Canada and set up a rural network of chiropractors and other medical professionals. Using our combined knowledge and skills, we can help minority communities through preventative and non-invasive techniques.
Outside of school, I love to sing and am involved in my church choir in downtown Minneapolis, as well as regular karaoke nights! I am the president of a local historical volunteer association back home, Friends of Lower Fort Garry – Skype meetings are a regular event for me! I believe a community benefits from knowing its history.
