I’m a life-long Alaskan and have lived in Juneau for 32 years. I spent three decades in education, teaching high school for 21 years. I love engaging in my community as a volunteer, working to support women, those less fortunate and the environment. My husband Mark and I have a small business selling locally caught fish. I love exploring the outdoors in our beautiful and wet Southeast rainforest.
