For forty years now I have called Alaska “home.” Whenever I travel outside, I inevitably find myself yearning for Alaska’s wide-open country. I am reminded then that as much as I’ve chosen this Northern place to live, Alaska has chosen me too. I am thankful for this area’s unique and moving experiences; like listening to the Great Horned Owls’ call in the middle of winter, and being surprised by fog soaked rivers at sunrise. I feel this place is as beautiful as any other special place on the planet.
By far, my richest experience has been raising my own family with Scott and becoming an involved community member. Alaska is still a small community, every one of us significant. People are my source of work, inspiration, and a reflection of myself. When I graduated from college and began my career, I believed I could do everything on my own! Alaska has taught me the necessity of connection, to give to others and to accept their help. Our lessons of life go beyond research, statistics, and methodology. When life is dark and cold outside, people and only people, define who we really are.
My life’s work in education include studies from University of Washington where I graduated with a Natural Science degree and Teaching certificate K-12. In 2012, I completed a life-long dream of completing a Master’s of Education in Mathematics K-8, followed by a certificate in English as a Second Language. Now, with my educational goals complete, I conjure new adventures with my family, singing in a community choir, spying new wildlife in the backyard, and spontaneous travels.
