Raised on the Saddle Lake reserve, she earned a BA in social work from the University of Regina and a certificate in drugs and alcohol counselling from the Nechi Training, Research and Health Promotions Institute. Her first book of poetry, Bear Bones & Feathers, won the Milton Acorn Award and was shortlisted for the Spirit of Saskatchewan Award and the General Lambert Award.
