The Notah Begay III Foundation has named four new members to its board of directors.

Katie Brossy, Jodi A. Gillette, Jon Greendeer and Audrey Martinez will help the foundation combat diabetes in Indian Country. They join Navajo / Pueblo golfer Notah Begay III on the 11-member board.

“On behalf of the board of directors, we welcome the addition of these incredible and proven individuals to the board. We look forward to working side-by-side with them to provide guidance to the organization and to advance our mission-based work,” Sean McCabe, the chairman of the board, said in a press release.

Gillette, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, worked for President Barack Obama and his administration for eight years. She helped launch Let's Move! In Indian Country to reduce high rates of obesity among American Indian and Alaska Native children and to promote active and healthy lifestyles.

Gillette now serves as an advisor for Sonosky, Chambers, Sachse, Endreson & Perry, one of the oldest Indian law and policy firms in the nation.
