Greetings —

I recently relocated to Charlottesville, VA from Dallas, TX to join the TTAP management team. I hold a BA in business administration from Oklahoma State University – Go Pokes! I am a proud member of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma and a national board member for Alpha Pi Omega Sorority, Inc.

My past experience in grant and office management, coupled with motor vehicle injury prevention knowledge, has prepared me to transition into my new role as logistics coordinator. I’ve worked in both a large rural Native American community in Oklahoma and in an urban small business in the Dallas area.

As a leasing agent, I ran dispatch and managed logistics across the Dallas/Fort Worth region. I’ve also served as the injury prevention coordinator for the Kaw Nation, including providing services to the Ponca Tribe, Tonkawa Tribe and Kay County. Funded by the Indian Health Services Tribal Injury Prevention Cooperative Agreement Program (TIPCAP), I worked to improve motor vehicle and child passenger safety, increase seatbelt use and reduce impaired driving.

I am excited to have joined the TTAP team and am enjoying working with tribes across the United States. I’m learning so much about each tribe’s unique transportation needs.

I look forward to serving you in the future.
