Proudly born in Yellowknife, NWT, Kimberley’s late mother hails from Pangnirtung, NU and her Scottish/Irish father from Montreal, QC. Residing in urban environments across Canada from Vancouver to Edmonton to Sudbury, she considers Ottawa, ON home.
Kimberley’s positive outlook and determination provides unique life and work experiences centered around voicing and implementing impactful change. Her career began in the independent film and television industry where she studied and worked in Vancouver, until homesickness prevailed. Back in Ottawa, Kimberley volunteered at a national women’s organization. This led to her career change in the non-profit sector developing skills and experience from Indigenous frontline programs to a national advocacy.
Kimberley brings Indigenous knowledge, values and leadership to this role as a proven community builder and catalyst to implement change. Years of hard work and commitment by the Indigenous Caucus membership built the foundation which Kimberley embraced as the driving force to establish the National Urban, Rural, and Northern Indigenous Housing Coalition. Kimberley appreciates her role driving positive change at CHRA.
