Public Affairs Specialist
Office of the Executive Director Department Off-site teleworker
I am a Yakama tribal member and descend from the Wishxam and Titenapum Bands. I am passionate about work that supports natural resource protection and tribal success through project planning and policy implementation. I am a mother of three daughters who I coach on an all-Indian basketball team named 1855. I also have one boy who is my youngest child. Our family loves to attend longhouse services, participate at pow wows, perform with Yakama Nation Little Swans’ dance troop, and engage in various sports and community activities. My professional skills have led me down a path of tribal public affairs work which is both exciting and fulfilling at the same time.
