I am Sugpiaq originally from Kodiak Island. I am married and we have two girls, living in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley on Dena'ina Athabascan land. I am working on OEC of Ethnobotany with hopes of Associates. I am also working toward Occupational Therapy graduate school and eventually a Matrix Repatterning Therapy certification. My hope is to find a way to integrate the two as I progress as a scientist in both Ethnobotany and the medical field.
