Tanis Rose Oldenburger was born, raised and currently residing here in the Fraser Valley, on the unceeded territories of the Stó:lō peoples.
When I am not cooking, doing yoga or taking care of my many plants, you can find me in the forest amongst the firs, fungi and ferns. I identify as a person with lived experience having been navigating Mental Health, Addictions and Criminal Justice for much of my life. In my recovery I am very passionate about giving back to my community of peers by helping to create systems that are easier to navigate. I am dedicated to positive policy and practice change, and willing to do whatever it takes to address and change systemic issues and harsh stigma that face all people with mental illness and those who self-medicate with substances.
