We work with prospective students, current students and health professionals to serve as a central location for opportunities of growth, professional development, mentorship, research and support.
What is your passion? Supporting students to pursue their purpose and path.
What advice do you have for students? Take advantage of the opportunities and resources that are out there, particularly those that will advance your pursuit of a STEM career.
Are you involved in any outreach programs (campus, state, or national)? Our center works with a variety of local, statewide and national outreach programs to connect students to the vast range of health and STEM related fields. We particularly focus on those serving underrepresented and Native American student populations.
What do you like to do when you are away from work? Spending time with my family and visiting my homelands are definitely top of the list. I am also actively involved in my community and enjoy working with Tribes and youth across the state.
