I am one of the Older Persons Action Group's newer board members, and would like to provide a brief introduction.

I am a lifelong Alaskan, who completed both my Bachelor's and Master's degree at UAA in social work. I worked at the Alzheimer's Resource of Alaska, where I was able to pursue my passion to support individuals and families affected by Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, and older Alaskans in need of community services. I worked as a care coordinator, outreach specialist, education specialist, and eventually the supervisor of our Care Coordination department.

I later transitioned to the role of Court Visitor for the Alaska Court System, where I have worked for the past 16 years investigating adult guardianship and conservatorship cases.

I also teach at UAA in the Dept. of Human Services, where I am able to help students learn about and understand the important role of serving older Alaskans, advocating for proper services and supports, and working together with the community.

I am passionate about serving our communities in Alaska and advocating for older Alaskans, and am honored to be a board member for OPAG.
