TWYLA ETCHINELLE (SHE/HER)
Steering Committee Member
My name is Twyla Etchinelle, and my pronouns are she/her.
I am from Tulita, NT, but currently residing in Yellowknife, NT. I am a board member for the NWTRPA and Home Base YK, Youth Representative for the Dene Nation Youth Council, and a newly selected Committee Member for the Northern Birthwork Collective, also, I volunteer in the community when I have free time.
I love sports and recreation, also, reading, sewing, and much more. What excites me about joining NBC's Steering Committee is learning more about the mind, body and health, also, natural birth, as our ancestors did not have certified doctors and nurses, but they did have midwives, who did so much work including travelling to and from work to home to support births. I find it fascinating and I would love to learn more about NBC, what they offer and what’s available for young or new mothers and parents.
