Academic and Professional Portfolio

Service

My current service includes community historical preservation efforts where I focus on foodway and language documentation. I have been privileged to serve as an elected leader on the Choctaw-Apache Community of Ebarb tribal council, to work on various committees, and to be master of ceremonies for the children’s powwow at Ebarb community (K-12) public school. I have been recognized for my leadership and service contributions at university honor awards ceremonies and am a member of Golden Key International Honor Society and Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society.
