I completed my undergraduate Human Development degree at the University of Green Bay in 1987 with a special emphasis in Lay-Midwifery. Through my undergraduate degree I was able to travel abroad to Mexico and completed a 12-month intensive lay-midwifery training in El Paso Texas. This course of study also fostered a strong minor in the Spanish language. Upon graduation I was able to work in the Midwifery field for several years. I also began working in the field of counseling and advocacy with a primary focus on adolescents and women. This area of profession took me on to complete my Masters at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 1992.
Upon graduation from the Counseling Program at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, I worked for the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin as a Psychotherapist. I was later promoted to a Continuous Improvement Specialist which gave me the opportunity to serve the Oneida Nation as an internal consultant specializing in the following areas: Continuous improvement; team building; meeting facilitation; consensus building; conflict resolution; leadership training; system redesign; and program planning. After 18 years of service with the Oneida Nation I began teaching for UW Oshkosh.
While I have taught as a lecturer for the past 10 years at UW Oshkosh in the College of Human Services and Educational Leadership, in the fall of 2008, I was hired as faculty. In 2008, I received a certificate for Nonprofit Management and am currently a candidate for my Ph.D. at Capella University in Human Services. I have completed all of my course work and am currently working on my dissertation which is focused on the impact of Native language learning and its impact on cultural preservation.
