Meet the 2012-2013 LIVE Program Staff!
Director, Student Leadership Development
Cara is originally from Cheyenne, Wyoming. She graduated from University of Wyoming with a M.S. in Counseling in 2007. She has worked in Student Services for the past 12 years and absolutely loves working with college students!
Cara moved to Fairbanks in 2008 to join the LIVE Program. She moved to Alaska with her husband and 2 labs Zane and Riley. If she isn't in the office you can probably find Cara hiding in a corner reading or out running, hiking or traveling.
Stop by Cara's office in the Wood Center she always has treats!
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!

Volunteer Program Assistant
Michael was born and raised on the Delmarva peninsula. He took his one road to freedom (Route 70) across the country and ferried up to Alaska this past May. He loves the outdoors and looks forward to future opportunities for travel. Happy to be a new member of the LIVE team, Michael can't wait for more opportunities to volunteer on campus and in the community. This year he hopes to help other students who share that interest.
LIVE Program Leadership Assistant
I shoot people... with my camera. I graduated his May with a Bachelors in Photojournalism. Currently I'm working towards a Master's of Business so I can have my own photography business. I've volunteered in the office at various times as part of the Alternative Spring Break program but this is my first year as a employee.My dog Kevinn will be in his argyle on Thursday, so you'd better be rocking that classy diamond pattern too.
LIVE Program Student Organization Assistant
LIVE Program Team Lead
I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska and am not going anywhere soon. I've worked at the LIVE Program for four years but will soon be sent off as I am a senior and will be graduating with a Spanish degree sooner rather than later. I love money and karaoke and someday hope to make one doing the other. Until then I bartend and waitress in my free time.
I will be organizing the Alternative Spring Break trip this year to Agua Prieta, Mexico so come by with questions or comments!
