Experience: "I have been with Portland State University since 2008 and have been trained to work with the multiple PSU system. I started at CLAS Dean Office as a workstudy student and worked my way to an Office Specialist 2 with the Indigenous Nations Studies. Then I moved to the Graduate School of Education as a Program Director Assistant for AIUTP program. At the Graduate School Education I was able to take on more projects and programs which has allowed me to develop training, build curriculum, and prepare educational workshops. In 2016, I moved to the Graduate School of Social Work, at the Center for Improvement of Child and Family Services.

Teaching/Training/Research Areas: "I have worked for many non-profit organizations and programs: Oregon Health Sciences University, American Indian Teacher’s Program (co-sponsored by PSU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Graduate School of Education), Oregon Department of Education’s grant for Culturally Responsive Elementary Mathematics, Native American Rehabilitation Association’s Healing Feather program, and several projects funded by Native American Tribal Governments (local and regional)."
