During her time as an undergraduate, Katie was actively involved with the Student Experience Office, participating in the Alternative Spring Break program and working with the Community Service Learning portfolio. Katie realized her passion for Indigenous issues in Canada through her classes at Carleton. Having a background in political science, she was drawn to the federal public service and began her career as a co-op student with the Resolution and Individual Affairs Sector at Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Development Canada. During this period, she worked on the resolution of files in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. Since then, Katie has worked on the implementation of Bill S-3 (including engagement with national Indigenous organizations and First Nations) as well as for the Specific Claims Branch of the Treaties and Aboriginal Government Sector. Her time and experiences at Carleton University put her on a path to have many opportunities in the public service.
