Community Coordinator
Notah Begay III (NB3) Foundation

My focus at the Notah Begay III Foundation is to help prevent the increase of type 2 diabetes and obesity among urban Native American youth by creating more access to spaces of movement and more sport opportunities in Albuquerque. By using a collective impact approach, I will target this challenge with a common goal and shared measures for success. By working together and bringing all our resources and passion to the table, we will move the needle in a positive direction.

I am a lover of life and of people—I believe everything happens for a reason, and it is my responsibility to observe and listen. I am passionate about health and fitness, and I find happiness in making others feel good about themselves.
