Bio:

I Graduated from USD with a Health Science Major and a World Religion minor. I also received my masters from USD in Adult and Higher Education. I am an instructor in the Health Science department here at USD. I teach face to face and online. I created the HSC 365 Universal Supports in Disabilities Services Curriculum along with the HSC/NATV 330 Native People's Health Care Promotion and Policy. Our goal in the HSC major is to help the School of Health Science meet their goals. I was the administrative graduate assistant for the department my first year of graduate school and a teaching assistant the following graduate year before being brought on as faculty.


Teaching Interests:

Health Care, Culture Care, Native American Healthcare, Health literacy , Health Disparities, Emotional Intelligence, Interprofessionalism and Public Health are some of my areas of interest. I also like to incorporate the students embracing diversity with inclucivity in their career goals, school and daily lives.

I have helped Honors students work on their honors thesis in areas such as holistic Occupational Therapy, Obesity related to the care givers perception and Traditional Native American Healing incorporated into health care. I am currently working with an honors pre-med student and one HSC student on research.
