prior to coming to ana, i worked in workforce development at the california indian manpower consortium, inc. (cimc) as a project coordinator for projects of digital literacy, soft skills, and youth development. i served in americorps*vista for two years and worked on an intergenerational culture preservation program on the lone pine paiute-shoshone reservation. my academic background is actually in media and art history and while at ucla, i had the chance to intern at tnt/tbs/cartoon network, study aboriginal art in sydney, australia, and work on a swahili film in zanzibar, tanzania. as a former ana grantee at cimc, i had the opportunity to see firsthand the great impact that ana funding can provide to native communities and wanted to be a part of an agency with this type of mission to create positive change. hhs.gov
