I had two major influences that steered me towards a career with the Indian Health Service. First, I am a second generation engineer officer in the U.S. Public Health Service and Indian Health Service. My father had a 30-year career with the IHS Office of Environmental Health and Engineering program. I was also fortunate enough to have received the IHS Health Professions Scholarship. I am a member of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe and take great pride in being able to serve American Indian and Alaska Native people.
