Employment and Training
My name is Kristal Berwick (nee Strength) and I am a status member of Wahta Mohawks. I grew up in Gravenhurst and moved to Wahta in 2004. I am married and have a beautiful daughter who I am very proud of.
My education consists of Licenced Hairstylist, Early Childhood Education diploma, First Nation Social Service Administrator Certificate and Indigenous Social Service Worker diploma.
In 2005, I became employed with Wahta Mohawks as the Employment Officer and Social Service Administrator. Besides these two positions I am the Administrator for Homemakers, I oversee the National Child Benefit Reinvestment (NCBR), Transitional Support Fund, First Nation Inuit Youth Employment Strategy (FNIYES) which consists of summer student employment and Traditional Kids Camp. I am often found multitasking in my office as I work with children, youth, adults and elders.
For the past year I have sat on the Joint Health and Safety Committee for Wahta Mohawks and Board of Directors for Kagita Mikam.
