I got involved with the Circle of Harmony Planning Committee, unofficially, during the last conference because I wanted to help an already established committee reach their goals with the conference. I helped at the conference registration table. I greeted participants. I registered participants and connected with friends and colleagues. Although my time and talents were treasured by the planning committee, I felt I had to do more. I wanted to do more.

I have ten years of experience as a HIV/AIDS Health Educator. I have worked on and near the Navajo reservation providing education, prevention services, and testing/counseling for Our People. I have also worked with the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico to establish their HIV testing program. Currently, I work at Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless. I am also pursuing a double major in American Studies and Journalism at the University of New Mexico. My tenure as a disease preventionist, a community organizer led me join the 2019 conference planning committee.

I am excited to join a planning committee that is indigenous led, female led, and inclusive of queer people. We are excited for you to experience all that the conference has to offer but most importantly to feel safe, free, and welcomed.

Aheehee.
