Greetings and good day my friends and relatives, I am truly honored to be here. My ancestral given name is STQWAL, English given name Lucia Bartleman. I am proud to be born and raised here in W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip) and now my children and grandchildren are doing the same. I am a proud mom of 7 children and 22 grandchildren.
I have previously worked at Pauquachin First Nation for 24+ years as the Health Manager. I am grateful for having the opportunity to help build upon the health program for their community and proud of the accomplishments that we have reached within my time working there. It was a privilege to be a part of the staff of which we so often referred to as our Pauquachin family within the staff that serves the community. I was honoured to have been awarded the First Nations Health Directors Association Inspiration Award in 2016 for 20 years of service working as the Health Director and recognizing extraordinary work in our community.
