About us

Our work is not just a two-person operation. Many of our trips are made with many wonderful people and organizations that make the time we spend on the reservation even more meaningful. Since we started working with Pine Ridge, our lives have been enriched by others who are willing to donate their valuable time and resources. Our work would not be possible without the generosity of many individuals nationwide that contribute to our organization. We are truly grateful for everyone’s support and will continue to carry on because of their collective contributions.

Our Story

Scott grew up in Mobridge, SD. He is a Managing Director for ECFX and was the last recipient of Thomson Reuter’s Stu Wolfer Award for his outstanding community service and work for the company. He first got involved working with the Lakota Nation in 2007 alongside a Lakota classmate from his hometown. His passion is photography, and he is responsible for contributing to much of our social media photos.

Joie grew up in Albuquerque, NM. She teaches high school at the Watershed School in Boulder and graduate school at the University of Denver in the Nonprofit Leadership and Arts & Culture Management programs. She is passionate about finding alternative solutions in education for at-risk populations and continues to advocate for opportunities for underprivileged and marginalized students. 

Together, they have three kids who also volunteer their time and energy to help the organization and numerous pets, including two dogs, Takoda and Micco, adopted from RezDawg Rescue.
