New staff bring experience
Heather Mitchell (bio link) joined UAS in April of 2014 as Development Operations Specialist and transitioned to the position of Alumni Relations/Annual Giving Manager earlier in July. Prior to working for the University, she spent a decade in community banking in a variety of lending functions, served over 7 years on the Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation board as its treasurer and member-at-large. Mitchell has two decades of experience working with collegiate and alumni groups, as well additional volunteer time spent working with a variety of educational and community non-profit groups. She has been involved with the UAS Alumni & Friends organization as a “Friend” and lifetime member for many years, so joining the staff is a natural fit and wonderful new opportunity for her.

Seanna is a successful small business owner and lifelong Alaskan with a B.A. in Journalism and Spanish. She brings more than 15 years of non-profit experience as a board member and volunteer.
