a bit about me:
I am a Yurok and Karuk Native American from Northern California. Currently, I am a master's student at Stanford University in the Environmental Engineering program, focusing on water resources and hydrology. In 2020 I graduated from Portland State University's Honors College with a degree in Civil Engineering and a minor in Political Science.
I have been an intern for the City of Portland, Bureau of Environmental Services, The U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, West Yost Associates Engineering, Save California Salmon, and the California Water Resource Control Board. I am a Gates Millennium Scholar, UNITY 2020 25 Under 25 Recipient, and a 2017 Undergraduate AIGC Student of the Year Awardee among other honors.
My goal is to bring together water rights and Native American knowledge through engineering, public policy, and social action. Current fights for me include undamming the Klamath River, denying the Jordan-Cove LNG pipeline, MMIW awareness, Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), and supporting women and Natives in STEM fields. At the moment I give public speeches and make artwork to raise awareness on these issues.
