I love Alaska for many reasons including the beauty and the endless outdoor opportunities. But I also love the community. Alaskans are a friendly, hearty bunch!
I started working in the tourism industry as a teenager. I was a tour guide on The Alaska Railroad, and I fell in love with sharing the state I grew up in! After college, I knew I wanted to make my career in this industry. Alaska is a once-in-a-lifetime destination for many visitors. As a local, it's easy to take that for granted. Working in the tourism industry makes me constantly grateful to call Alaska home, and it helps me consistently see it through "new" eyes.
