Based in Metlakatla, AK
Employed by Southeast Alaska Regional Health Center
I was born and in Bethel, AK, graduated from Bethel Regional High School in 2000. I left for New Zealand in 2003 to attend the University of Otago and graduated in 2004. Ever since I started working for YKHC I have been dedicated to caring for the people of the YK delta. I have been working and living in Aniak, AK since 2006 and have been providing care 12 surrounding villages.
I am a certified Dental Health Aide Therapist (DHAT) that trained in New Zealand in 2003-2004, working for the Maniilaq Association since January of 2005. After doing a six-month preceptorship in Kotzebue, I moved to the village of Shungnak, where my husband is from, and practiced dentistry in the local clinic as well as frequent travel to other villages.
