Hello, my name is Jerad Kozey. I've lived in Regina the majority of my life and attended the University of Regina for my undergrad. For my graduate studies, I looked abroad and attended the University of Southern Queensland in Australia. I am currently enrolled in their PhD program studying Indigenous Education and online learning. After my studies, I've played many roles. I've been a teaching assistant, curriculum developer, and a sessional instructor specializing in Indigenous health studies. During this time, I've developed a deep love for Saskatchewan, and a strong desire to see Indigenous peoples succeed. It is these powerful feelings that will help me succeed in my new role as IPHRC's newest Indigenous Research and Engagement Platform Specialist.
