I have worked in geriatrics, with Alzheimer's patients, in the Emergency Room, Case Management, and in Primary Care. I completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Cancer, Aging, and End of Life care in 2015 at the University of Utah. My research focus was caregiving for Alzheimer's caregivers, and Chronic disease interventions that are culturally appropriate for Native American Elders.
