Hello! I am absolutely thrilled to, once again, be part of this project! While I was a student of History at UAF, I worked for the Creating Alaska Project at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. It was great to be so involved in documenting and publicizing significant events in Alaska's recent history while learning how Alaska's first people and heritage helped give a unique perspective and shape those events. As part of Creating Alaska, the Conference of Young Alaskans was put on for the first time in January 2006 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Alaska Constitutional Convention. It is an honor to be back as a member of the Steering Committee. I am looking forward to inspiring and thoughtful discussions here.
I am a lifelong Alaskan who still loves all that this beautiful state has to offer. I have a B.A. from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in History and am currently working as a legislative aide. I call Fairbanks home but my interest in politics takes me to Juneau for part of the year, and now to Anchorage. Outside of work you can usually find me gardening, hiking, skijoring, or designing/sewing my own clothes.
