What is the best thing about teaching at AKFMR?

I love the moment of epiphany when a new concept or idea comes to light, whether for me or a resident colleague or both.

How did you end up in Alaska?

My husband grew up in Anchorage and had always wanted to come back. When I came up for interviews and saw nordic ski tracks and moose right outside my hotel, I was sold.
