Salwa moved to Rural Alaska in 1991, where she and her husband lived for three years. She joined the Camp Fire team in August 1998, as an accounting associate and moved to Human Resources seven years later. Salwa loves her work because it gives her the opportunity to meet all of the staff and watch them grow personally and professionally. She is married with two adult sons, both of whom worked as counselors for Camp Si-La-Meo while in college. She enjoys traveling, cooking and spending time with family and friends.
