Alaska Certified Expert – Alaska Travel Specialist Team Manager

I’ve enjoyed welcoming visitors to Alaska since I was a child helping out at my grandmother’s campground in Fairbanks. Through my work and a life spent in Alaska, I’ve cruised the Inside Passage, visited Barrow, Nome and Kotzebue, toured seven national parks, relaxed on the Alaska Railroad, and flown to remote lodges.

In addition to living in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and Haines, I have also been a visitor, giving me a complete perspective to help clients get the most from their time in Alaska. Some of my favorite experiences have been in Lake Clark NP, Prudhoe Bay, Kenai Fjords NP, and Juneau. I love showing off the variety and beauty my state has to offer!

My love for Alaska started as a child in my dad’s bush plane.  We’d take off from our Bristol Bay fishing lodge and look for a remote lake to spend the day hiking and fishing.  Alaska was mesmerizing to me as a child and it continues to be so today.  As an adult, I’ve had the privilege of leading tours to remote regions of the Arctic.

Learning about Alaska’s rich cultural heritage is both educating and rewarding. My favorite place in all of Alaska is Point Hope, a tiny Inupiaq village on the edge of the Chukchi Sea.  In the summers, you’ll often find me out exploring Alaska’s parks with my family in our vintage VW camper bus.  I love seeing my kids light up through travel and outdoor experiences.

As a lifelong Alaskan I love the immense beauty and vast wilderness Alaska has to offer. As a young child I grew up fishing for King Salmon almost as big as me!

I have enjoyed many adventures living here including kayaking in Prince William Sound, backpacking deep inside Denali National Park and glacier exploration by helicopter in the Tordrillo Mountains. I love helping others to create their own perfect “Alaskan Adventures”.
