Personal Interests: 

I enjoy outdoor activities, spending quality time with my family, working out and cookouts.


In 2011, I was diagnosed as borderline diabetic, which made me think about my lifestyle choices. I began working at the Chickasaw Wellness Center, where I developed a passion for helping others reach their fitness and nutrition goals while learning those things myself. Since then, I have also found an interest in gardening and growing vegetables for our Chickasaw citizens.

Why I Love My Job

I enjoy learning about the programs for nutrition services and lmpa' Kilimpi'. I appreciate our goal of educating others on better lifestyle choices. I am so excited to do what I love and grow a community garden to provide vegetables for our programs.
