I was both a Child Welfare Scholar and a NCWWI scholar during the MSW program at UMD. I have been working in the front lines as a child protection case manager for the last 10 years, 6 of those being in tribal welfare. I have spent the majority of my professional career working with Indigenous families and communities while following and implementing the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and the Minnesota Indian Family Preservation Act (MIFPA). Additionally, I have been training with UMD’s Tribal Training and Certification Partnership (TTCP) since November 2021. As a community trainer with the TTCP, I am part of a team that trains BSW and MSW students, new ongoing child welfare workers, ongoing child welfare workers with years of experience, Guardians ad litem, tribal partners, and DHS on ICWA and MIFPA.
