As publisher, she oversees all aspects of the museum’s book program, from acqusitions to production, distribution and marketing. She is excited to be modernizing the book program with ebooks and audiobooks, expanded international distribution, greater accessibility, renewal of the Royal BC Museum handbook series, and a portfolio of authors and book subjects that is more representative of our province’s rich diversity of people and cultures.

With her science and writing background, she has also been involved in content production and editing for numerous museums and cultural institutions, including the Beaty Biodiversity Museum; the Royal Alberta Museum; Parks Canada; the City Museum of Nome, Alaska; the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in New Westminster, BC; and Queen Elizabeth Park in Edmonton, Alberta.
