Yá'át'ééh. I am Navajo and Cherokee. I grew up in Shiprock, New Mexico. Working on the Navajo reservation triggered my desire to teach. I have always loved science which led me to a graduate degree in biology. My position as a faculty member at EMCC has allowed me to integrate the two. I teach non-majors Human Anatomy and Physiology (BIO 160) as well as General Biology (BIO 181, 156). I have taught classes in both the hybrid and face to face format.
