What impact has Milwaukee AHEC had in your life?
I participated in the Milwaukee CHIP program in 2019 and am currently a part of the Northern Highland AHEC Scholars cohort. During my time as a public health intern, I was able to discover that public health, advocacy, and accessibility to healthcare services, are truly hidden passions of mine.
My participation with Milwaukee AHEC has transformed my career aspirations. As a Native American woman, I have become extremely passionate about advocating for rights for Native communities as well as continuing to learn about the history of Native tribes. Because of Milwaukee AHEC, I had the opportunity to be placed with Southeastern Oneida Tribal Services to learn more about Natives in an urban community.
One day I hope to give back to the Native community and work as a RN Community Case Worker in or near a reservation.
