Vulnerability doesn't have to be a bad thing—it doesn’t have to be a soft thing. It’s just another skill that informs how we make decisions, how we learn, and how we heal.

My road in life has been direct.
When I first started school at the University of New Mexico, I was interested in nursing.
While at the University of New Mexico, I started working for the National Indian Youth Leadership Project and discovered that I really enjoyed facilitation and experiential education.
I decided to pursue a career in experiential education.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in intercultural communication.
I’ve since worked as a positive youth development specialist for Chemawa Indian School, a youth educator for Friends of Zenger Farm, and a crew lead for Northwest Youth Corps.
I currently work as a program coordinator for the Emergence and TAP (Therapeutic Adventure) programs at The Mountain Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
