Her poetry was also included in an anthology from MSU Press, 100 Years of Upper Peninsula Writing, 1917–2017.

In any season, you can find her walking at Lincoln Brick Park or along the Grand River jotting lines for poems in her notebook or snapping photographs. In 2019, her photographs were featured in Still Point Arts Quarterly and Snapdragon: a Journal of Art and Healing. Images of the natural world are prominent throughout her work as she stays true to the teachings of her Ojibwe father, who taught her how to provide careful stewardship and to always honor her surrounding environment, whether a woodland or urban landscape.
