Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
I was born to a Navajo woman, but was adopted at birth and raised by my adoptive parents in rural Indiana—they were very loving and supportive throughout my whole life.
After college, I spent over 25 years designing fast fashion clothing for well-known companies.
While teaching my child about sustainability, I decided to leave my job as a corporate fast fashion designer and start a sustainable consulting company.
As a consulting business owner, I was able to work from home so that I could better balance being a mom and running a business.
When technology evolved enough to make connecting with people easier, I was able to locate my birth mother and connect with all of my family members on the reservation.
While consulting, I started Orenda Tribe, an upcycled sustainable vintage collection that is fueled by a desire to honor Indigeneity.
I have since stopped consulting, relocated Orenda Tribe to New Mexico, and started doing philanthropic work with Native youth and communities.
