In fulfilling these responsibilities, the committee strives to:

- Convey one UAS brand with a consistent design and navigation scheme;

Following high school graduation in San Diego, CA I escaped the city life for the remotes of Alaska by joining the US Air Force. After several years of service at Eielson AFB in Fairbanks, Alaska I learned that neither Fairbanks nor the Air Force was for me.
Following my exit from military life I worked the summer on the "slime line" working in the canneries of Bristol Bay, Alaska to get the feel for Alaska life outside the military. Although the life of cannery work was never in my cards, I did enjoy the comradery of working in a fish camp, enough to return for several summers while pursuing my degree from Humboldt State University in northern California.
While attending Humboldt, I went on National Student Exchange to the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau during my Junior year. Upon graduation from Humboldt, I returned to Juneau and have been working with UAS since. My jobs at UAS have varied from employment with student housing to manager of the recreation center to my current position as Web coordinator. What attracted me to Southeast Alaska was the feeling I had as an exchange student. That was the feeling of euphoria one felt as a child upon waking up the morning of a trip to Disneyland. For the outdoor enthusiast, Juneau has just about everything for those who enjoy kayaking, hiking, camping, fishing, skiing...you name it.
My wife Lori, who once worked for UAS, now works at the Alaska Association of School Boards. We have a wonderful son Garrett, who loves the outdoors and spends most of his time "looking for Nemo" and playing with slimies (worms).Add me to your MacAddress Book|Outlook

In 2000 I graduated from Beaverton High School in Beaverton, Michigan. I moved here to Juneau that fall as a Freshmen here at UAS. After two years and an Associate degree later, I decided I wanted to see some of the country and take a break from school. I traveled around out West before heading back to Michigan. After a while I felt the pull to come back to Juneau. I once again made the drive up the Alaskan highway in the spring of 2003. I went back to school in the Fall of 2003, this time to get my Bachelor of Business Administration.
It was here in Juneau that I met my future husband, we got married in early 2004. My husband and I have 3 kids, our son Connor born in 2005, our daughter Claire born in 2007, and our son Cole was born in 2010.
Though I don't get the chance to visit my family in Michigan very often, Juneau is where my heart is and I consider this to be the best place to live!

I've loved living in Alaska since I first arrived here at the tender age of 2. I've been blessed to see much of the state having lived in Chugiak, Talkeetna, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Ketchikan. The beauty and serenity of this special place we live (even with the large amounts of rain) is inspiring. After graduating from a little Alaskan high school (we had a graduating class of 18 students) I attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, graduating with a BA in Business Administration in 1990. I 've had the pleasure of working with college students for over eighteen years and I am inspired by the perseverance of our students as well as the power of education to help students change their lives for the better.
