My name is Natalie McKenzie. I have been employed in ?Esdilagh First Nation since February 2017. I come from a small isolated community called Nazko First Nation.
I hold two positions with the ?Esdilagh First Nation - the Social Development Worker and Education Coordinator. As the Social Development Worker I am responsible for administering the Social Development Program. I have been trained by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada in November of 2016 and I received a certificate for Band Social Development Worker Training. I also ensure the reporting is completed to meet AANDC's requirements.
The second job title I hold is as the Education Coordinator. I administer the Education Program and help band members with their post-secondary goals through processing their applications for funding. With this program I am also responsible to comply with AANDC's reporting requirements.
