Communications & Marketing Director

As the Communications & Marketing Director, I work with our teachers, staff and the Board of Directors to provide a cohesive look and feel to our School’s communications and to improve the flow of information so that families and the community better understand the important work that is being done everyday at the Indian Community School. I believe that strengthening communication between our School, parents and the community is important because it fosters engagement on all levels and builds a stronger Native community. My greatest joy is to see the young faces of our students, knowing that everything I do is ultimately for them. I am an experienced branding, graphics and marketing-communications professional. I hold an Associate Degree in Commercial Art from MATC and have studied at Carrol University (BA Communications) and the University of Chicago-School of Business.

My Anishinabe name is Zeegwun Noodenese and I am Migizi (eagle) Clan. I am a descendant of Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe and a First Degree Midewiwin of the Three Fires Midewiwin Lodge in Bad River, WI. I am very active in the Native Milwaukee community and volunteer my time where ever possible. My passions include the revitalization of the Anishinabe Strap Dress and learning the Ojibwe language. I live in Muskego with my partner Mark and our two sons.
