Throughout my career, I have had the awesome privilege of journeying with communities to identify their values and to discover how we can move together toward sustainability and mutuality. In my role now as the Kellogg Campus Director at Alaska Pacific University, I have the opportunity to bridge together the values of education, community, and sustainability as we strive to live towards a more sustainable world while supporting a high-quality, hands-on education. With a background deeply rooted in Design Thinking, my work often emphasizes data-driven outcomes, prototyping new initiatives, rigorous evaluation, and iterative development.
I am excited to utilize that background by developing equitable programming and amplifying the voices of Alaska’s Native communities and Indigenous ways of learning in every aspect of our operations at the Kellogg Campus. This endeavor extends beyond a mere professional strategy; it reflects a profound personal commitment to justice, diversity, and inclusion.
The Kellogg Campus is not just a canvas for innovation; it is a place where cultural awareness, environmental stewardship, and academic excellence coexist harmoniously. I’m inspired by the Indigenous ways of knowing and being that have stewarded this land for generations and there I find the motivation to collaborate, learn with, and grow from our partners and community members.
