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.

Employed by Tanana Chief’s Conference
It has been nearly three years since I graduated the DENTEX program. T.C.C. hired me and moved me to Tok, which is a perfect fit for my family and lifestyle. It is a small town on the road system, a great mix of the things I love about the bush yet still accessible to the comforts the city has to offer. Work as a DHAT remains as fun and exciting as I had felt it would. Every day is different; I never know what kind of work I will be doing till it’s done. The people that work in the clinic with me are amazingly fun to work with. On top of that the people of the community are just as fun and interesting to get to know.
