My road in life has taken me all over.
I grew up on the Flathead Reservation in northwest Montana, where both my culture and education were emphasized as very important.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in human services and then went on to earn an MBA.
I built my career working in many different industries, including working as an accountant for a tribal college and working in philanthropy for other nonprofit organizations.
Ultimately I landed at my dream job as CEO of Native Forward Scholars Fund, where I get to fulfill my passion of empowering Native scholars so they can go out and do whatever they want in the world.

Day to Day

Every day is different. I could be working with our staff to make sure they have what they need to provide scholarships and programming for students. I could be meeting with donors or corporate partners to figure out how we can partner together for the benefit of our students. I spend time fundraising, traveling, and developing relationships with people.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

I recommend studying business. I implement the skills that I gained from my business degree regularly. It's a strong field that complements the nonprofit space nicely. I also recommend gaining skills in finance and building infrastructure of an organization.
