She said, “Being Native American (family from Laguna Pueblo in NM), I am very passionate about serving an indigenous community and the opportunity to be part of a team that serves such a large native population even in the most remote of areas. It is exciting to learn about a new people and their culture and become involved in the Sitka community.”
