Biography

Since 2016, while working as a database administrator in the department of Epidemiology, I have volunteered my time to many UCLA organizations, committees, academic departments, and campus initiatives. As President of the Native American Staff Association, I advocate for Native staff, faculty, and students by voicing opposition to the decision-making processes on campus that continue to marginalize Native people. As President of BruinTech (2019-2020), a staff lead organization for the campus I.T. community, I focused on bridging the cap between the STEM and non-STEM campus I.T. communities in order to further support UCLA’s world-renowned academic research. Embracing UCLA’s commitment to environmentally sustainable practices, I have volunteered on various sustainability committees to ensure progress for a healthier, environmentally friendly campus. I bring to CUCSA a determination to advocate for all UC Native staff, a commitment to improve communication processes throughout the UC campuses, and an eagerness to incorporate an environmentally sustainable culture for all staff, faculty, and students within the University of California system.
