Ann Spehar earned a Masters in Applied Economics at Seattle University in Washington State where she also earned two undergraduate degrees in economics and math at the University of Washington. She holds a Master in Education in curriculum and instruction from Montana State University and has two years of study toward a doctorate degree in economics at Washington State University and the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada.

Courses Taught

Ann Spehar is currently an Assistant Professor in Economics at the University of Alaska Southeast. She is responsible for designing, developing and instructing online asynchronous courses in Money and Banking, International Economics, Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory, and principles courses.


Spehar’s field of interest is the theory of the endogenous business cycles. She has studied the 1930’s U.S. ‘Great Depression’ extensively, and has compared it to the 2008 financial crisis. Spehar has recently published two papers on that topic in the World Economics Journal.   She has also published in the International Journal of Wilderness.

Spehar has also worked as a consultant in industry, with areas of expertise in mathematical modeling, software engineering and project management. She worked 15 years at the Boeing Company, supporting clients that included Bell Laboratories, AT&T Long Lines, McDonnell Douglas and Hanford Nuclear Facility. She served in executive leadership at the Boeing Company in Seattle and received over 700 hours of Boeing Company training when that company was expanding its territory beyond aviation into computer timesharing services to the world. At the time, Boeing Computer Services (BCS) provided cutting edge computer engineering consultation to 148 government and commercial customers.

Ann Spehar was born in Fairbanks, Alaska “before it was a state” where her father served as editor of the Fairbanks Daily News Minor and headed up AP for Alaska.  She has recently moved from Montana with her husband Alex and Australian Shepherd Montana.

I’m originally from Northern California and lived in Bethel and Skagway before moving to Sitka in 1992. I enjoy helping students build a firm foundation in the topic that will serve them well in their careers. I am active in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS).  As part of HAPS I helped develop standards for undergraduate human anatomy and physiology courses taught in the US and Canada. I am committed to quality eLearning opportunities and developed and delivered the first distance science courses offered by UAS. As Sitka’s lab director I currently help oversee the lab support portion of UAS Sitka Distance Science courses which have grown to involve multiple faculty members and currently serve over 200 students each semester.  I believe it is important to give back to my community by doing what I can to enrich science literacy, assist in community-based scientific research, and help create science-related opportunities for everyone, especially K-12 students.

Community Projects:

  • Served as an invited researcher for Scientist in the Schools programs at elementary, middle, and high school levels.
  • Helped establish science clubs at the local elementary and middle school that give kids a chance to interact with scientists and collect data for meaningful research projects.
  • Found opportunities for K-12 students to meet and work with scientists from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, UCSF, UAF and Project Budburst.
  • Assisted with marine invertebrate identification for community BioBlitzes and provided intertidal ecology expertise for many community organizations.
  • Involved in a project to revisit historical work done in Sitka by Ed (Doc) Ricketts and link it to modern intertidal survey protocols.

I am particularly interested in the ecology and functional anatomy of intertidal organisms, especially with respect to predator-prey relationships.  I am also very involved in marine invasive issues and research, particularly with respect to invasive tunicates. I am a member of the Alaska Marine Invasive Species subcommittee and the Didemnum vexillum Rapid Response Team.
