As well, I also volunteered on the Squamish Nation Budget and Finance Committee as the Deputy Chair, the Cutting Barriers to Employment and Training Association (CBETA) as a Board Directory, SPIP Suicide Prevention Intervention Post-intervention Committee Member, and the Native Indian Football Association Board Member and Alumni.
