Our Staff

Meet the 2014-2015 LIVE Program Staff!

Josh Hovis

Student Organizations Coordinator

Come along friends, and listen to my story about a man named Josh. After crawling his way out of the swamp deep in the heart of Pocahontas, Arkansas Josh flew, much like Hermes, to the frozen north of Fairbanks. Atop his mountain precipice of frozen tundra wanderlust overtook him and he journeyed outward and onward in ever-ongoing orbital motion. Every winter he spends looming in this arctic region of Midgard only to burst forth with a wild fervor upon the summer trembling the earth with a renewed vigor for new and exciting places.

A few of his favorite things involve kayaking with crocodiles, swimming with sharks, hugging koalas, and petting wild animals.

This is his second year working with Student organizations and he couldn’t be happier. If you have questions about student clubs and organizations he would love to give you answers.

Stop by his office and he’ll give you some of Cara’s candy!

Jared Conrad

LIVE Program Student Organization Assistant

I will answer to Jared, J-Rod, J-Rad, and JayRay, so take your pick or throw me something new. I'm technically the Student Orgs Assistant as well as the LIVE representative for Club Council and Student Org rep for Traditions board, but I occasionally second as a mechanic for the LIVE office and well, anyone else that they know and that I might be able to help. Been in Alaska 10 years and can't wait to never leave. Studying in my final few semesters in the NRM program with a concentration in Forestry. If you are looking for Josh and you only see me, odds are I can be of some assistance as well so do not hesitate to ask!

Grace Weller

LIVE Volunteer Program Student Assistant & Alternative Spring Break Coordinator

My name is Grace and I grew up on a small island in Southeast Alaska called Petersburg. I love sports and I live for the outdoors. I represent the Alaska Nanooks as a cross country runner and I am also part of the Student Athletic Advisory Committee. Volunteering for my community back home has been a huge part of my life and my goal is to give back to the Fairbanks community as well. I’m a freshman here at UAF and I am ecstatic to be part of the UAF LIVE program!

Every summer I commercial fish with my family in Bristol Bay.
