About me

I'm passionate about creating an equitable school experience and outcomes for all children. Having personally experienced racial bias and mistreatment by teachers in elementary school, and with the support of my family and tribe, I embarked on journey of advanced education to ensure more equitable treatment for future generations. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology and minor in Theology from North Central University in Minneapolis, a master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from East Carolina University in North Carolina, and a doctorate in Family Social Science and Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I have the privilege of using my education to advance racial equity through my work as a clinician, supervisor, researcher, teacher, and now administrator.
