Who I Am
As an anthropologist, my passion is human
cultures. I've worked in Alaska schools, museums and cultural institutions
since the 1970s, sharing more than 40 years of academic study in ethnohistory,
culture, and oral tradition.
My professional strengths include creativity, organization
and logistics, sound fiscal management, and an ability to build cohesive
teams that bring out the best in their members. I have published books,
articles and academic papers, written interdisciplinary educational
curricula, and designed website content and navigation schema for
school districts, museums, businesses and nonprofits.
In 1998, I co-founded Healing Racism in Anchorage,
a nonprofit organization that promotes social justice and understanding
in our community.
My anthropology degrees were awarded by Brown University
(Phi Beta Kappa, Magna cum Laude), Northwestern University and the
University of Alaska Fairbanks. I also hold a secondary teaching certificate
from the state of Alaska.
