Ne Nani’a Jessique Jim, and I am a new hire to the Social Service Department-Tobacco Prevention Program. I am Paiute-Shoshone from Northern Nevada. I moved to Burns in the summer of 2016, and I reside on the Burns Paiute Reservation with my kuwuh Keith Kennedy and our 2 beautiful daughters Khloe & Khalia. I love living in Burns and being a part of the BPT community.
I joined the SS Department Tobacco Prevention Team because I believe I can offer help to those who want to quit smoking. Being an avid smoker prior to having children, I understand the effects it has on not only a personal level, but also to those who are surrounding you. I hope to bring awareness of the harmful affects of tobacco abuse to the communities’ young & eldest. I want to be able to connect with the community through communication and understanding.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or one of our team members! Our offices are located at the BPT Armory so stop by and say Hi! Let’s get acquainted…
