Senior Manager, Indigenous American U.S. Programs

Danzho, a heartfelt greeting in my Jicarilla Apache language, I am a Native American mother with a strong passion to advocate on behalf of my Indigenous people and the empowerment of Native American girls.  My voice comes from a strong educational foundation, I have earned three master degrees and a bachelor’s degree, while raising my children. With ancestral ties to the Jicarilla Apache from New Mexico and the Cheyenne River Sioux from South Dakota, I carry a rich cultural legacy in my heart. Driven by a deep sense of responsibility and love for my Native American community, I dedicated myself to breaking barriers, empowering the next generation, and tirelessly advocating for my Indigenous People. My lifelong journey is a testament to the power of resilience, unity, and unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in the lives of my people and future generations, empowering Indigenous females.
