Project coordinator | Travois

It is important to remember that our job is, first and foremost, about people. Every family deserves a safe, affordable and comfortable home. Our Travois team is here to help you and your housing authority make sense of the mountain of paperwork, the maze of spreadsheets and the thicket of requirements you face as you seek new and improved housing opportunities for families in your community.

You work in housing because you want to help individual families have a roof over their heads. So do I.

I understand the importance of focusing on people. While I was pursuing my law degree, I was an intern with a victims’ services organization. I volunteered with Douglas County CASA and advocated for children who have been uprooted from their homes. Those experiences are invaluable assets as I approach my work because it reminds me that at the end of any chain of legal documents, there is a person or family we are trying to serve.

I have a bachelor’s degree in legal studies with a minor in political science from Park University and a law degree from the University of Kansas, where I earned the Tribal Lawyer certificate.

I want to put my skills and experience to work helping you serve your community. Get in touch with Travois today and tell me what I can do for you.
