Meet the Team
Northern Initiative Team 2016-2017
Carly Machum: Webequie Peer Educator
Jacqueline Toole: Webequie Peer Educator
My name is Jacqueline Toole (most people call me JJ) and I am a second year Kinesiology student. I am also a member of the Varsity Cycling Team at Queen’s and I enjoy anything that involves being outdoors! I love to ski, bike, hike and am always up for an adventure! Becoming a part of QHO has had an incredible impact on my university experience. I chose to apply for QHO, and specifically the Northern Canada initiative because I am passionate about Indigenous issues and I believe there is a lot to be done to reconcile Canada’s relationship with its Indigenous peoples. Through QHO I have developed many skills such as how to think critically and be open-minded. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to work alongside the amazing individuals that make up QHO!
Krista Magee: Pond Inlet Peer Educator
I am currently completing my 4th year at Queen’s University, as a Health Studies major and Biology minor. This is my second year as a member of the QHO team! I am passionate about coffee, baking and watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I was motivated to get involved with QHO because I have developed a strong interest for physical and mental health and hope to pursue a career in sustainable health education after graduating. Being apart of the QHO Northern Initiative and working with like-minded individuals has opened my eyes to the various health inequities that exist within northern Canadian communities. I have learned so much so far as a PE and I cannot wait to continue to learn more from the students and community members in Pond Inlet!
