Lindsay was born and raised on Vancouver Island. She is grateful to live and work on the traditional unceded territory of Snuneymuxw First Nation. She has a strong passion to support both participants and the team of RTT, but all humans in general. She holds an honours certificate in Medical Transcription and in Medical Office Administration with a Unit Clerk diploma. She supports Roots to Thrive by working as a Participant Navigator and is incredibly grateful to be doing so. Lindsay believes wholeheartedly in promoting wellness; healing of the mind, body, and spirit. When time allows you can find Lindsay spending time with her family in, on, and around the ocean where she feels most at peace.
The in-person gatherings of the Roots to Thrive program take place of the ancestral and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation at the Hulit Lelum (Health Centre), and also on the homelands of the Coast Salish, Kwakwa̱ka̱ʼwakw and Nuučaan̓ułʔatḥ (Nuu-chah-nulth) Peoples.
Integral to Roots to Thrive’s approach to healing, re-connection and remembering who we are, are these Guiding Principles. By embodying these principles we intend to honour and give thanks to the Snuneymuxw and all First Nations, the teachings they carry and lands they steward, and to join in working for Truth and Reconciliation.
