What I like best and least about my work…

What I like best about my work is being able to create innovative approaches to designing, implementing, and measuring the outcome of projects that target AI/AN tribes.

What I like least about my job is that currently, the NHLBI/OPEC budget has not allowed me the opportunity to travel and work more directly with the tribes.

My career goals are…

My career goals are to finish my current projects in a way that will positively benefit the tribes for years to come. Though I am eligible to retire in a few years, I don’t want to leave anything undone. One of the reasons I took this position with NIH is because the projects could have a national impact and create positive change for all American Indian and Alaska Natives.
