Hinįkaragiwi! As a Prevention and Policy Intern, Catherine is passionate about improving health outcomes for Indigenous communities. She earned a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies from Arizona State University. She is a firm believer in higher education being physical and tangible. That means talking to elders, interacting with other Indigenous leaders within communities, learning the language, and embracing sovereignty as it pertains to health. As an enrolled member of the Ho-Chunk Nation Catherine aims to use her perspective to learn, listen, and amplify voices that have been excluded from the conversations of health equity. In her free time, she enjoys playing piano, reading, playing with her dog Reader, and listening to albums by Natalia Lafourcade.
