I am an alumna of Rehoboth Christian School and so glad I could return to give back to the school that helped shape the person I am today. I am also a mother to three daughters who all graduated from Rehoboth as well. My husband and I met in Gallup, NM  and have been married 20 years. I grew up in Window Rock, AZ where my dad was a pastor before retiring in 1997. My family is originally from Shiprock, NM, and I am Maiideshgizhnii born for Oze Tachinii. 

After graduating from Rehoboth, I attended Dine’ College and the University of New Mexico but after marrying my husband. who was serving in the US Navy, we moved to San Diego, CA.  I continued my studies and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Communications with an emphasis in Media Management and minored in American Indian Studies from San Diego State University.  Now, I am attending Gonzaga University finishing my graduate program in May 2020 with a Master’s in Organizational Leadership with a concentration in Change Leadership.  

It has been gratifying to return to the very institution that helped mold me and encouraged my leadership potential.  I am so glad to talk about my personal experience as a student and a parent to other potential parents interested in Rehoboth.  As the Admissions Director, I enjoy my daily conversations with parents who want to see their child receive a Rehoboth education that includes rigor, community, and Christian values.  I really enjoy helping families and students with achieving their future goals. I have worked as an academic advisor with first-year and first-generational students and want to see our RCS students succeed not only in college but with their life plans.
