She is also pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Global Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children (Global WACh).

She is passionate about the intersection of sexual and reproductive health, human rights, and social justice. In line with this, she is interested in studying Inuit perinatal health in Nunavik, Québec throughout her FLAS-French Canadian area studies.
