I am the Career Readiness Advisor at The Kalispel Development Company.  I work with tribal members to help them become skilled and desirable applicants.

I advise with resumes, mock interviews and building on the job skills to apply for the positions the members desire.  I’ve worked for the Kalispel Tribe for thirteen years.
