When did you join St. John’s College?
In August 2017.
What is your favourite part of your job?
Creating local impact. I enjoy engaging and connecting our work on campus with our community partners and members of the public in ways that are meaningful and useful to them.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Serving on the board of the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of BC, visiting my niece and nephews, enjoying nature through walks/hikes/taking photos.
Other connections to UBC:
Alumna of the English Department, First Nations and Indigenous Studies Program, and the Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program; Coordinated the naming and storytelling committees between Student Housing and Hospitality Services and the Musqueam Nation in 2010-2011 and 2017-2019.
I oversee community engagement and communications at the College with a range of community partners, organizations and collaborators. My work includes the development and circulation of educational materials and research initiatives. Most recently I curated and put together the new website for the College.
I was born in Prince Rupert, B.C. on Tsimshian territory. My graduate research was centred on the history of Chinese market gardening in the Musqueam community, and I was the lead Producer of the documentary film All Our Father’s Relations. As an alumni of UBC in First Nations Studies, English, and Interdisciplinary Studies, I have had the opportunity to work and grow within multiple units on campus. I enjoy creating meaning experiences and multimedia materials that re-centre stories that have been left in the margins.
