A resident of Barrow for the last ten years, I have been employed with Iḷisaġvik College for approximately the same time. My professional experience includes high school teacher and principal, college faculty and administrator. Uqautchim Uglua is a multi-faceted program and does not fit the traditional mold. Its unique combination of projects provide room for growth, innovation, cultural development for all stakeholders, and my involvement has been very rewarding. We have a great staff, and I am privileged to be part of this dynamic team.
