Recruitment & Outreach

Boozhoo nindinawemaaganidoog!

I was born and raised here in Leech Lake, and now I get to part of Leech Lake Tribal College as Admissions Outreach Recruiter ! As a graduate of Cass Lake-Bena High School I am familiar with the community dynamics and as a recent graduate from University of Minnesota Duluth, I am eager to help build the college community into a positive and active environment! I am very excited to learn more and more about our growing college and I always hope that you will join us in our mission to be an institution of quality higher education that helps student achieve the next step on a professional and academic level.

Being part of the Admissions team, my main responsibility is to get everyone excited about going to college, regardless if it is here, or moving towards a 4 year University. Leech Lake Tribal College is the place for a great start! With so much to offer we are able to help every kind of student; working students, parent students, returning students, Elder students, and PSEO students!

As part of my philosophy as an educator, it is never too LATE or EARLY to start thinking about college, and LLTC is not only a financially fit option, but a great place to begin your college career! You will see me out at local schools in and around the community getting people excited about college careers and options! If you do see me, ask me how to apply for college, schedule an appointment with me, or simply drop by my office on campus in Student Services to talk about starting or finishing your college career today!

See you soon!
