Kim-Marie Rumley

Director, Yukon First Nation Education Directorate

I have spent the majority of my life in the Yukon, living mostly in Whitehorse, but also lived in Old Crow, Yukon for five years. In 2013 I relocated to Victoria, BC to go back to school. I am now home in Whitehorse for a year working with YFNED.  I grew up spending a lot of time on the land, learning how to hunt, fish, harvest and berry pick. I am so grateful to my dad for teaching us those skills as young women, as they have proved invaluable in my life.

My formal Education is in Criminology & Psychology, as well as Addictions and Mental Health. My Professional experience includes working with youth in schools, project management, capacity building initiatives in Indigenous community, advocacy work and supporting health and wellness Initiatives in community. Working on the Nutrition Team at YFNED is a joy for me because working with our communities, ensuring our Youth and Elders are well fed warms my spirit. My loves are my boys, travelling, being on the land, dogs, movies, swimming and walking. I love people and I love working with Families and Children.
