Lindsey Mabbut - picture - cropped 2My name is Lindsey Montileaux Mabbutt, and I am Oglala Lakota, from Tea, South Dakota. I studied medical biology at the University of South Dakota, where I also ran track and field. I am currently working towards my Master’s in Public Health, through distance education, from North Dakota State University, and specializing in American Indian public health. I am a research coordinator at Partnerships for Native Health, where I enjoy working with our partner communities and am thankful to be a small part of the large impact of our mission. I love to run, travel, and spend time with my husband exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Jordan Skalisky

Jordan SkaliskyHi, my name is Jordan Skalisky. I grew up in Tennessee and did my BA in psychology at Seattle University. I’m a research coordinator with the Partnerships for Native Health and currently working on a multi-site project that uses a behavioral intervention aimed at reducing alcohol and drug misuse. The intervention provides positive reinforcements for abstinence, instead of negative consequences. I’m specifically interested in substance abuse, cultural differences in regards to substance use, and the impact of substance use in the communities we work with. In my free time I like to read, write, and play the piano.
