She:kon, my name is Erin Ferrante and I am Kanienkehaka from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. I am thankful to have been working in my home community for the past 5 years, with expertise in Human Resources and Administration.
I have over 9 years of Administrative experience combined in both the business and medical fields. My previous education is in health science, and I am currently working on my Human Resources Management Certificate through online studies. I am elated to be joining the Kenhte:ke Midwives as the Program Assistant.
To be an Indigenous Woman, living and working in my home community is a gift I do not take for granted. I am passionate about the strength of our community and the families within it and how Aboriginal midwifery promotes the regeneration and preservation of our culture, language and the overall well-being of our women and families. I am thankful to walk this path with the Kenhte:ke Midwives and the families they nurture along the way. Nia:wen Kowa.
