My capstone examined learning communities, in the hopes of establishing as Inter-Tribal LLC at UW-Eau Claire. I am currently a graduate student at Northern Arizona University in the Counseling- Student Affairs Program and I work for Housing and Residence Life as a Graduate Assistant for Residential Learning Communities.
