She graduated from the University of New Mexico with a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with a focus in Teaching English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL). As an educator, her philosophy is centered on bridging pedagogy to student's identities and lived realities.

Her research focus is on indigenous language, land, and culture preservation while further understanding the sociocultural influence education plays in the lives of indigenous peoples.
