About Bridgette

My research speciality for the past 10+ years has been in the area of indigenous evaluation research. I have lead, been a team member, and/or supervised evaluations in the general area of indigenous social well-being. Project areas include: family violence; intimate partner relationships; women’s and children’s health; tobacco, alcohol, drug, use and reduction; positive learning environments (primary, secondary and tertiary institutions); cultural competency and evaluation training. Within the range of projects I have been involved in I have worked with different types of agencies from: Private, Public and not-for-Profit sectors.
