Meet the Staff
Christi Kemper: Office Manager
Christi Kemper has been providing fiscal & administrative support to the Office of Sustainability since June 2013; in the past she has worked a variety of jobs in the fields of natural health, higher education and aviation maintenance. She came to Alaska in 2010 to attend graduate school at UAF after earning degrees in history & anthropology in Colorado and never left! Her interest in sustainability started many years ago when she worked in a natural & local foods store and is heavily intertwined with her interests in self-sufficient living and food production. Christi loves owls and likes to spend her free time gardening, knitting, cooking, playing music, doing karate, crafting and hiking or otherwise exploring the great outdoors utilizing snowshoes, skis, or kay.

With interests in ecology and the field of Natural Resources management in general, he enters the campus scene fresh from the creation of a recycling program at his high school, West Valley. Alexander is also a volunteer at Calypso Farm and Ecology Center and Turning Light Farm.
