I provide freelance and contracted services for individuals, businesses, and educational organizations.
My mission is to increase Indigenous Student Success by creating culturally-responsive stories, curricula, and educational resources that are relevant to Alaska Native and American Indian Student Populations.
I’m experienced with designing events, creating curricula, speaking in front of crowds + so much more!
I’m Bristol Bay Yup’ik and St. Lawrence Island Yupik with family ties in Bristol Bay and the Bering Strait. I’m a member of the Curyung Tribe and a Shareholder of the Bristol Bay Native Corporation. I currently live in Anchorage, but split time between Alaska and Washington State.
I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska and graduated from West High School in 2010. I went to Wenatchee Valley College in Washington State and Iḷisaġvik Tribal College in Utqiaġvik, Alaska, where I earned a certificate in Early Childhood Indigenous Education.
I started my professional career as a flight attendant in 2012 and worked at a regional airline for five years where I had the opportunity to travel all over Alaska and make lifetime personal and professional connections.
After my career as a flight attendant, I earned certificates in digital marketing and analytics, which helped me secure my first job in Communications as a Community Relations Manager for a local nonprofit organization.
Currently, I work with the Anchorage School District funded by an Alaska Department of Education and Early Development (DEED) grant called Alaska Education Network – Project ECHO, where I’m an Analyst / ECHO Coordinator.
My love for people, design, and technology started at a very young age. I grew up going to sports camps, STEM camps, orchestra camps, and family trips all over the country, where I had the opportunity to learn about many worldly aspects.
It didn’t take very long for me to recognize my passion for storytelling through digital design and technology. It is through these things I can express my emotions and build community in a creative way. I choose to use these skills to make a meaningful impact to recognize the beauty and cultures of Indigenous peoples in Alaska and beyond.
With over ten years of professional business experience, I have many skills in my toolbox. One of my greatest talents is the ability to be both tech-savvy and socially-savvy with exceptional analytical and interpersonal skills. This means I can implement technology or design-heavy projects while demonstrating the much-needed aspect of having an engaging personality and clear communication skills.
My portfolio contains a wide variety of projects including, but not limited to, event design, website design and development, database management, curricula creation, public speaking + much, much more! Much of my work is displayed on this website and I would be happy to highlight specific works related to your interest.
I look forward to fostering a connection with you!
