Born and raised in Alaska, Anne returned after earning an M.S. Education: Policy, Administration and Leadership with a focus on ecology and culture, and is committed to serving Alaska’s rural Native youth and families. Anne started with Camp Fire’s School Age Program as Site Director at Trailside Elementary prior to the pandemic.

Anne enjoyed spending 2 summers out in the field as a lead travel staff for the rural program in 2018 and 2019, and continued to be involved with the program as a Support Specialist through the years of program adaptations in response to the pandemic. Throughout her time with Camp Fire she has continued her education with UAF’s school of counseling and was honored to accept the position of our Rural Program Director knowing the role will well utilize her culminating skills, education and experience whilst aligning with her personal and professional values and aspirations. She is incredibly passionate about our Rural Program and welcomes questions or conversations about it anytime!

The Camp Fire Alaska main office operates on the ancestral land of the Dena’ina people. Camp Fire Alaska runs programing on the lands of the Athabascan, Yup’ik, Chup’ik, Sougpiaq, and Inupiaq peoples. We value and thank them for their current and historic commitment to and protection of this land. We pledge to assist, in partnership, in the environmental stewardship of these lands. We strive to learn more about the history of the Native peoples of Alaska and the historic trauma they have suffered. We commit to being an active ally through activities, actions, and organizational decisions and practices. We understand that this is a dynamic process through which our Land Acknowledgement practices, and statement will evolve as we receive feedback from tribal partners and acquire a deeper understanding of and from the Native peoples of Alaska.
