Board Member: Wanda Smith

wanda-smith-198x300Wanda Smith is a mother, sister and “Great” Aunt from the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in Ontario. A Mohawk of the Turtle clan, she has been actively working in the field of addictions for the last thirty-seven years.

Her career has taken her from her community (Youth Worker), Timmins (Teaching Master of the Native Addictions Counsellor program), Toronto and Ottawa (Southern Ontario Zone and Regional NNADAP Consultant), New Credit First Nations (Native Horizons Treatment Centre), Prince Albert, Saskatchewan (Teaching Instructor, SIIT; Executive Director, White Buffalo Youth Solvent Abuse Centre) and back to her home community where her heart is truly with Native Horizons Treatment Centre.

Wanda’s passion and dedication are inspired by the deep belief that we are responsible for the healing of ourselves before we can affect healing with anyone else to provide a much healthier, happier environment for our children and grandchildren.
