Professional Interests: 

Finding new ways to implement the Chickasaw language in activities and lessons that we present to the community.

Personal Interests: 

Running, dance, fitness, spending quality time with my family and friends.


My number one inspiration is always family; my kids and husband. They always encourage the person I have become and I love that I can learn, not only to take care of my well-being, but theirs as well.

Why I Love My Job

I love my job because I love teaching the younger generations about being healthy and why it is very important, and I also get to teach bits and pieces of the Chickasaw language. I love the fact that anything I learn on the job I am able to take home and teach my kids.
