Biography:
My first teaching job was at Leech Lake Tribal College, where I taught biology labs and a biology class while I was in graduate school. After graduation, I took a job as a watershed district administrator. However, I found I missed the classroom and being a part of college life. I returned to teaching at White Earth Tribal and Community College, where I taught various science classes for two years before returning to LLTC.
My interests are the outdoors and education. I enjoy learning about and experiencing nature and all types of outdoor activities, and I love being in the classroom – either as a student or instructor. I am currently a PhD student in the Earth System Science and Policy program at UND.
