Greetings to all residents of Monfwi Riding
I was born and raised in Behchokö and I speak Tlicho fluently. I am married to John B. Zoe and we have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
I finished grade 9 at the Chief Jimmy Bruneau School and graduated from Sir John Franklin Territorial High School in Yellowknife.
I worked with Dogrib Rae Band as bookkeeper for a number of years before becoming Executive Director of the Rae-Edzo Friendship Centre.
After working as Bookkeeper for the Dogrib Rae Band and as Executive Director for the Rae-Edzo Friendship Centre, I decided I want to go to University to further my education and follow my childhood dream, which was to become a lawyer. I attended the University of Alberta, my major was Native Studies and minor in Political Science. I transfer to the University of Alberta Law School and received my law degree in 2003. I became a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada (Ontario, 2004) and a member of the Law Society of Northwest Territories in 2005. I worked for the Law Firm of Pape Salter Teillet as an associate Lawyer and became sole practitioner in 2010. I was legal counsel to Dogrib Treaty 11 Council then the Tlicho Government.
