She has an extensive background in policy development, public relations, leadership development, strategic planning and community engagement. Winona is also an active community volunteer and leader and states that her innate connection to the land is important to fully understand and appreciate her culture and rich heritage. She spends a great deal of time with nature and her patience, humility and self-discipline are all positive attributes that keep her grounded and immersed in her culture.
