“The best applications tell stories.”

I'm a member of the Class of 2014 at the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, studying General Management and Strategy. At Darden, I'm a Consortium for Graduate Study in Management Fellow, a member of Net Impact, as well as the Business & Public Policy club and the American Indian Student Union. Prior to attending Darden, I was an associate director of Admissions and the coordinator of Native American Recruitment at Dartmouth College, where I spent five years leading under-represented minority recruitment initiatives and reviewing thousands of college applications. I spent my first year after college in the National College Advising Corps serving as a mentor and college access resource for low-income students in Charlottesville, VA.

I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2005 with a BA in Political and Social Thought. I'm an enrolled member of the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah and have family ties to the Pawnee and Comanche tribes in Oklahoma. I grew up on the Hungry Valley Indian Reservation outside Reno, Nevada. My partner Grace and I have a seven-year old son named Russell. I'll spend this summer as a Strategy and Innovation Fellow at Teach for America through the Education Pioneers program.
