She is passionate about the training of undergraduate and graduate students, and she fulfills part of this commitment through her role as Director of the Indigenous Health Lab. In 2015, Dr. Richmond was awarded the Julian M. Szeicz Award from the Canadian Association of Geographers, in recognition for her early research excellence.
