She currently lives in Juneau.

Tiadola graduated from Northwest Indian College in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Native Environmental Science.

In the winter of 2021, she moved to Juneau to work for Central Council of the Tlingit & Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska. She currently works for the Native Lands and Resources as an Environmental Stewardship Technician.
