Aron Wahkinney

After graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in communications media in 2011, Aron began his work in the graphic design field. He started out at MARCO Promotional Products, as a graphic artist, where he worked for two and a half years. At the end of 2014, an opportunity came to reconnect with his roots in Oklahoma, where he was born and raised until the 8th grade. He took a position working with his tribe, the Comanche Nation, within the Prevention and Recovery Center. That’s where he began his work in the substance abuse prevention field. He worked under the SPF-TIG (Strategic Prevention Framework Tribal Incentive Grant) creating graphic design and multi-media messaging geared towards preventing underage drinking and non-medical use of prescription drugs. That experience led him to a great opportunity to come on board and work with the Oklahoma Area Tribal Epidemiology Center within the Southern Plains Tribal Health Board. In his role as communications specialist, Aron works with many tribes creating resources to help promote substance abuse prevention.  In his off time, he loves to hike and enjoy the outdoors with his wife Kortney and their two dogs, Lily and Brady.
