About Me

I live, work and play in the unceded territories of the Sheet’ká Kwáan, on what is currently known as Sitka, Alaska. With gratitude I serve the Lingít (Tlingit) peoples and all Alaska Natives within their healthcare system, as well the diverse population of Southeast Alaska.

Education & Experience

I completed my Masters of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Whitworth University in 2013, completing an internship providing counseling to college students. I went on to volunteer in a variety of counseling settings including in-home counseling to elders and at a community behavioral health clinic in Spokane, Washington. I have worked full time in community behavioral health in Sitka, Alaska since 2014.
