Anne-Marie comes to NSRJS as Program Manager of the Schools Initiative after completing her Master of Arts degree in Human Development (Educational Psychology) at McGill University. After experiencing her first circle which strongly impacted her research as part of her graduate student journey, she became interested in restorative justice in education and social-emotional development as a response to victimization, discrimination, and bullying in schools, with a specific focus on LGBTQ and marginalized youth. Anne-Marie has a strong commitment to social justice and she believes that restorative justice can be a powerful mean to engage students in dialogues relating to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
She is excited to starting her role within the NSRJS and continue to learn and create in collaboration with the team in place. She is also thrilled to land on BC soils, moving from Montreal with her partner, for new beginnings.
