KARIE MASHUNKASHEY - MEMBER AT LARGE
I am Karie Mashunkashey and I am humbled to be named as a nominee for the position of Member-At-Large of OICWA. I will celebrate my 9th year with Osage Nation Social Services as an Indian Child Welfare Specialist this November. I have a
BS in Elementary Education from Haskell Indian Nations University, and will be starting my final year for my Masters in Social Work this August. I am a member of the Cherokee Nation and my husband Russell is a member of the Osage Nation. We are raising our two children, Coshehe and Gentry in Barnsdall, Oklahoma. My favorite part of Indian Child Welfare is getting to be in the field visiting and interacting with my families and clients that I serve.
