Alaska: Northern Passages & Glacier Bay | May 4, 2019
You might spot archaeologist Anne with her 16 year old Collie Aussie mix following alongside in what she calls “most glorious natural setting in the world,” Alaska. Anne is grateful to work in a field where she can experience remote areas of the Southeast while living out her passion to serve and assist communities, small nonprofit corporations, and Alaska Native entities with their historic preservation goals.
While she started her career pursuing a business major—and worked as a commercial fisherman during graduate school—Anne quickly realized her detail-oriented nature would serve her better in archeology. She now holds degrees from Washington State, Adams State, and Leicester Universities and is a member of the Society for American Archaeology, the American Anthropological Association, the Alaska Anthropological Association, and the Alaska Association for Historic Preservation. Motivated by validating and preserving our shared heritage, Anne is consistently intrigued by the resiliency of the displaced First Nations people of Alaska. www.sealevelsitka.com
