Associate Director of Student Leadership and Involvement
Strengths: Harmony, Developer, Context, Intellection, Individualization
Zodiac sign: A total Capricorn. Stubborn, yet helpful.
My name is Heidi Shepard and I am a long time SLI program participant. I worked in the program for 4 years as an undergraduate student, which opened so many doors for me! Since leaving UAF I've worked for the state legislature, as a personal trainer, a group fitness instructor, and in the hospitality industry. My favorite part of this job is students, so come visit us!
Student Organizations Coordinator
Strengths: Intellection, Restorative, Responsibility, Empathy, Harmony
Zodiac sign: Pisces
Hi! My name is Paige, and I'm so excited to be working with all of our student organizations! I'm originally from Wisconsin, and graduated with both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Minnesota, so both states have a place in my heart. My husband and I moved to Alaska in 2015 and have enjoyed exploring all the great things the state has to offer ever since. In my spare time I like to walk our two dogs, Rudy and Chance, read, watch Game of Thrones, and create beautiful charcuterie boards with friends. Like Heidi, I too love when students come visit, so don't be afraid to pop in and say hi!
