Jasmine is currently in the Master of Social Work Program at Humboldt State University, and hope to continue the work much of our community has started, which is healing. She believes healing comes in many different forms, and we all can take a part to protect ourselves as Indigenous peoples, and continue our healing journeys. Much of her passion lies in supporting mental wellness in our communities utilizing culture, in addition to supporting and advocating for our survivors of domestic violence. She hopes to continue expanding on my work to continue to support and protect our peoples. Chiokoe (Thank you).
