Lisette Austin has been a Research Coordinator for the Healing of the Canoe Project since its inception in March 2006. Healing of the Canoe is a flexible curriculum for Native youth focused on suicide and substance abuse prevention. It was designed to be adapted by Native communities using community-specific traditions and beliefs to strengthen youths' connection to their communities and cultures, and strengthen their hope and optimism. Previously, she worked with the Fetal Alcohol & Drug Unit, now a part of ADAI.

Additionally, Lisette is a freelance writer and a website and content developer for Austin Creative, Inc.
