She collaborates with the Tulalip Community Health Department to create a culturally, vibrant, and healthy community. Annie has worked with the Tulalip community as the SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator since 2016. AnneCherise graduated from Central Washington University in 2014 with Bachelors in Food, Science and Nutrition and a Dietetics Specialization.
