Pronouns: she, her, hers.

Carly is a settler originally from Cree territory in Manitoba who now lives in East Vancouver with her cat Riker. Her working life has largely focused on harm reduction and mental health, including working in government, the Knowledge Translation & Evaluation department at the Dr. Peter Center, teaching sex education in Montreal high schools with Head & Hands youth services, and responding to AIDS Community Care Montreal's online sex education helpline. Carly's graduate studies specialized in Indigenous Public Health and examined how environmental racism impacts food security and reproductive health. Carly likes to get nerdy about data visualization and finding creative ways to get people excited about research. She is a big fan of science fiction, baby goats, and gardening.
