Meet Our Team

Nicole Goff
Career Advisor
Nicole Goff was raised in the hot and sunny state of Arizona. She attended Arizona State University, graduating with a bachelor's degree in elementary education. Nicole then spent the next 5 years teaching 5th, 4th and then 1st grade. She received her master's degree in curriculum and instruction in March of 2020. 
In June of 2020, Nicole and her husband made the big move to Fairbanks. Nicole's husband received a wonderful job opportunity here in Fairbanks and together they decided building their life in Alaska was a wonderful adventure to embrace! Nicole worked for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District as a 1st grade teacher for one year, before deciding to make the shift to higher education as a Career and Academic Advisor here at UAF.
When not in the office, Nicole enjoys spending time with her husband, friends, and her three dogs: Bjorn, Odin, and Freyja. She also spends much of her free time exploring new places, enjoying new restaurants, reading a good book, and spending time outside. Nicole considers herself a lifelong learner, and always enjoys learning new things.
Nicole looks forward to meeting with you and supporting you in your career and academic goals!

Westyn Beaudoin
Student Assistant
I was born and raised just outside of Portland, Oregon, and moved to Fairbanks in the fall of 2018 to pursue a top tier education and true adventure in the last frontier. I started off as a petroleum engineering student, but am now pursuing a Bachelor's degree in accounting. I plan on graduating in the Spring of 2023, as well as obtaining a specialized CPA shortly after graduation. As of now, I intern for ConocoPhillips, Alaska, and plan to work for them post graduation. 
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy skiing, fishing, white-water rafting, traveling, and a good ole movie night. I live with my four best friends and my sweet cat Luna, and I plan on staying in Alaska post graduation.
