Claudette’s past work experience as a Chef – managing the kitchen and helpers, and as a Laborer and Small Equipment Operator – working safely and productively with others - has developed skills that she uses while performing her Councillor duties.

Through these she is helping to move the First Nation towards growth and self-sufficiency as a healthy thriving Community. Overall Community Wellness is the goal for everyone from our Babies to our Elders.
