      A UBC scholar with a law degree and a PhD in nursing is in some rare company.

      In the past, Moss has taught at Yale, the University of Buffalo, and the University of Minnesota.

      She's a member of the Three Affiliated Tribes of North Dakota. In addition, she has equal lineage as Canadian Sioux/Saskatchewan, according to her UBC profile.
