Mitakuwasin, Hello. My Name is Nicole Ross, but I invite you to use my nickname Niki. First, let me say I am very happy to announce I am your new administrative secretary for the Indians Into Medicine (INMED) program. My first day was April 18 and I have already received a very warm welcome from so many staff here at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and from everyone in INMED. I was born in Devils Lake, N.D., and raised on the Spirit Lake (Dakota Sioux) Reservation. I received an Associate of Arts degree in business administration from Candeska Cikana Community College, and I look forward to completing my Bachelor of Public Administration degree here at UND. I am a mom of five and a proud grandma of two adorable children. I also love attending pow wows and traveling. I am excited to be here and am honored to work for the INMED program. I look forward to share all my future endeavors with everyone here on UND’s beautiful campus!
