Securing a bright future for every Alaskan


My husband and I are both entrepreneurs who are deeply involved with the community.

I found my way to Alaska when my husband, Ben, invited me for a road trip around the state and when the trip ended, I never left.

Investing in our neighbors isn’t just a talking point, it’s a core value of our family. We believe that “if you can, you must.” Last fall, we took in a family of eight refugees from Afghanistan and we remain part-time guardians to the two oldest girls.

We are proudly raising two kids, Emerson, six, and Jack, who just turned one.

When I’m not working, I love to take the kids to Lyn Ary Park, walk or ski the Coastal Trail, try a new restaurant, or go on an adventure in Alaska’s great outdoors.
