My research interests are focused on combining my passion for wildlife and land conservation with the traditional knowledge of my Lakota culture. Additionally, I have a strong interest in climate change adaptation and resilience throughout Native American communities. At the University of Nebraska at Omaha, I am currently majoring in biology while also working towards a minor in Native American Studies with a focus on Tribal Emergency Management.
After graduation, my goals and aspirations include:
- Finding a position with a range of opportunities which allow me to use the knowledge and skills I have gained while also allowing me to continue learning.
- Using my experience, connections, and career to give back to my community by helping ensure our lands, resources, and wildlife are preserved for future generations through conservation and sustainability efforts.
- Creating an accessible STEM-based summer camp program for Native youth
