Kodiak Area Native Association
I was born and raised in Kodiak with two sisters and a brother. My grandparents taught me to be a hard worker and that family is the most important thing in life. I have worked as a dental assistant since 2006. Some people are nervous about going to the dentist, but if you can talk to them and make them feel comfortable, the chances of them coming back are better. I am excited for more education and more skills as a dental professional, which will make me able to give back more to my community.

I am from Fort Yukon, Alaska. My goal was to start a career that was always different and challenging. I got an education as a Dental Health Aide Therapist so I could return to my hometown and work with the people of my community. I try to make the people confortable, and educate them on how to keep from getting cavities. I have a lot of friends here and like to help in anyway I can. I like to go camping, hunting, and fishing. I also like to bead and play basketball.
