Taos Pueblo, Chiricahua Apache and Mexican descendant — I have been with Red Wind for more than six years. My BA is in Sociology, where my topics of interest included families, gender-based violence, power and privilege, and settler colonialism. I am a trainer for the National Tribal Advocate Center for the 40 hour Domestic Abuse Tribal Advocate Institutes and the Sexual Assault Tribal Advocate Institutes. I also present at several conferences. I have experience working with Tribal housing authorities and Native programs nationally providing strategic planning, capacity building, trauma-informed care for Survivors, anti-violence work, building collaborations, policy and protocol development, and harm reduction. I formerly was the Program Director of the Haseya Advocate Program, a project of Red Wind Consulting, Inc. that offers culturally specific advocacy in Colorado Springs, Colorado serving Indigenous Survivors of domestic and sexual violence before becoming the Project Coordinator for Red Wind’s Tribal College Campus Technical Assistance Project.
In my spare time, I love running, practicing yoga, and I enjoy hiking with my husband, 5-year-old son and black lab in our new home state of Minnesota.

German descent — I began at Red Wind as an intern working towards bachelor’s in social work. Five really fast years later, I now also have a master’s in social work from Metropolitan State University in Denver with a focus of generalist practice. I have always loved mezzo and macro social work. Working with Red Wind on trainings and technical assistance operations and the mix of project planning, capacity building, and project support brings unique spaces that allow me to constantly learn and grow. I have also spent time interning with homeless responses specific to veterans in Colorado Springs.
In my free time I spend time with my dogs and I really love being creative.

Diné, Apache and Mexican — I have been working to end violence against Indigenous victims and Survivors for 36 years. I developed and am the Executive Director of Red Wind coordinating and providing Tribal Training and Technical Assistance for recipients of the Tribal Governments Program for the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW). I developed and serve as the lead trainer for the National Tribal Advocate Center operated through Red Wind. I previously developed multiple programs as responses to domestic and sexual violence; long-range planning, policy and protocol development, coordination of CCR and SART. I enjoy working with our Tribes, meeting new people and providing training and facilitation work.
I have my masters degree in Public Administration from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) and bachelors degree from the University of Minnesota, Duluth. I am also published in three anthologies: Shout Out: Women of Color Respond to Violence; Sharing Our Stories of Survival: Native Women Surviving Violence; and Birthed from Scorched Hearts.
My favorite quote comes from Wilma Mankiller, "We must remember we have Indigenous solutions to our problems."
