My spiritual name is Ginew Gabii Noondogozit Ikwe, meaning Eagle Calling Woman. I am a member of Rolling River First Nation, Manitoba and grew up in rural Manitoba in The Pas. I am a Registered Dietitian working at Nanaandawewigamig (First Nations Health and Social Secretariat of Manitoba) with the Diabetes Integration Project (DIP). As the sole dietitian on the project, I work with all 20 of the First Nation communities that DIP services across Manitoba. Previous to this position, among other short-term positions, I worked in the fly-in community of Garden Hill First Nation for almost one year as the Clinical Dietitian. I have always had a passion for working with First Nations communities and helping to prevent diabetes and its’ complications. I am currently working towards obtaining my Certified Diabetes Educator designation to advance my knowledge and skills in this area.
