She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from North Dakota State University last May, and has been accepted into the North Dakota State’s Master of Public Health program.
She was crowned at the 2015 Gathering of Nations Pow Wow in Albuquerque in April. Since then, she has been busy representing her title visiting tribes, reservations and Native events here in the U.S. and also has traveled to Canada.
