SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium
I am an Alaska Native (Tlingit) from the Eagle Brown-Bear clan, born and raised in Juneau. I have always been interested in health care and, as a dental assistant, often have found myself wishing I could practice as the provider. I look forward to serving my community as a DHAT, with the hope that some of my future patients will want to do the same.

“Prior to DENTEX I worked as a dental assistant for over a year. I traveled to regional villages and learned that I have the endurance to handle stressful positions and stamina to get the job done. I like to believe it’s my family—my roots—that have given me the background and tools that I need to be successful as a Dental Health Aide Therapist.”
