Amy Cross - Diversity & Prevention Coordinator
Amy joined the NDAC Staff in May 2017. A recent UAF graduate, she completed her undergraduate studies in Sociology, Justice, and Women & Gender studies in December 2016. Amy is passionate about promoting social justice and ending violence. In her free time she enjoys practicing yoga, playing in the outdoors, and spending time with her pup Olive. Don’t hesitate to stop by NDAC with questions, suggestions, or just to visit! 

Peter Gilbert - NDAC Student Assistant
Hi, my name is Peter Gilbert and I am a freshman after taking a gap year between college and high school. I have lived my whole life in Alaska growing up in North Pole specifically. I am the founder of North Pole High School's GSA and I hope to continue to share that passion for diversity and inclusion while working here at NDAC. My major is political science and my minor is currently digital journalism, though that is subject to change. I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, and cuddling with my very sweet guinea pig named Mochi. I hope to meet more people through this job and get to know campus better as well. Please feel free to come by, I love to meet new people. 

Breanne Meath - NDAC Student Assistant
Hello! I’m Breanne Meath, and am thrilled to be a new member of the NDAC team this fall semester. I am a lifelong Fairbanksan in my (super) senior year at UAF because I haven’t quite limited my class choices to just those which apply to my major. I’m seeking a sociology degree because I wish to gain more knowledge about all different types of humans and how we can support each other to ensure everyone feels safe, listened to, and valued. I’m also passionate about minimizing my carbon footprint, gardening, yoga, and connecting with people. Stop by the office so I can get to know you!

Chia Moua - NDAC Student Assistant 
Hello! My name is Chia Moua and I currently hold senior status here at UAF, but a super senior college status having literally been in college for a majority of my life due to a ginormous love for learning. I was born in Chonburi, Thailand, but grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and have been here in Alaska since 2015. My majors are psychology and communication and minors are philosophy and sociology. The career that I look forward to possessing after undergrad and grad school is a Communication professor that teaches others about interactions of human beings and the different ways that we portray that.
