    "The best part of my job is integrating the indigenous perspective in every program I manage, whether that's incorporating traditional ecological knowledge into environmental education curriculum at a Wilderness area or national monument, teaching volunteers' indigenous history of public lands, or working with tribal communities to add their narrative and language to Jr. Ranger books. My job allows me to make a difference in everything I do."
