Traditional Knowledge and Western Science: A Powerful Combination

This passion is rooted both in her Nlaka’pamux heritage and technical background. Tamlyn holds a B.Sc. in Biology and Environmental Studies from the University of Victoria.
Tamlyn has worked with both industry and First Nations to develop tools and processes to bridge the two ways of knowing to support developing meaningful relationships though environmental management and impact benefit agreement implementation.
