Biography

I grew up exposed to many different world cultures which lead me to start my career as a research assistant for an international community-university partnership at Arizona State University during my undergrad degree. From there, I joined a team of industrial psychologists to study communication patterns between Afghanistan and American employees at an international company during my Master’s degree in psychology. Wanting to reconnect with my tribe, I returned to Oklahoma. Due to the large health disparities within the tribe, I sought additional education from Johns Hopkins University. I currently supervise all the research projects performed in the tribe’s Human Services department. Most recently, I completed an evaluation on a home-visiting project addressing maternal and early childhood health.  I also volunteer as a member on the tribe’s IRB.
