During the first 15 years of her professional life, Marie-Josée (or Marijo) made herself known as a journalist and news anchor on major TV and radio channels in Canada and abroad.
In 2007, her life took a complete turn when the elders of the Algonquin Nation offered her to embark on a life long path of learning their philosophy and traditional medicine.
Five years later, along with the hereditary chief T8aminik Rankin, she founded Kina8at-Together, a non-profit organization dedicated to the transmission and enhancement of indigenous cultures.
Marie-Josée regularly offers training programs
inspired by the millennial traditions of the First Nations. Her teaching is also influenced by the rigorous training she received in the field of mindfulness.
