Professional Biography

These days you will find me working from home in either north central Montana (Great Falls) or eastern Montana (Wolf Point, Fort Peck Assiniboine Sioux Reservation). I provide training, facilitation and coaching for tribal child welfare organizations and program management for the NCWWI Breakthrough Series Collaborative (BSC). I am a mother of two adult children and grandmother of two, soon to be three. I split my time between Great Falls and Wolf Point to spend time with family. I love driving across our big state and feel blessed to be able to live in such a beautiful place surrounded by nature in one of the “last best place(s)” in this country. I’ve developed many interests over the years and consider myself a “dabbler” in a number of areas, including kayaking, hiking, camping, foraging, herbalism, cooking, fermenting, knitting, and ceramics. I’m sure I’ll find more things to dabble in before my time is up. I enjoy traveling to new places since I’m curious by nature and love learning about cultures different from my own. And, yes, I’m a lover of books and always interested in book recommendations.
