Sophie Nethercut, Tongass Community Organizer, was bewitched by Alaska in 2009 and has yet to break free of her mystical spell. Originally from Minnesota, Sophie graduated from Yale University with degrees in History and Ethnicity, Race, and Migration. While at Yale, she taught courses in New Haven public schools, helped coordinate local elections, and sang in an African music ensemble. Her academic work took her away from New England to Ecuador, where she conducted HIV research, as well as to Spain, Brazil, South Africa, and Vietnam, where she studied urban planning and sustainable development. She worked for several seasons as canoe guide in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of Minnesota and has seen firsthand how wild places can transform lives. Sophie loves meeting new people, eating lots of salmon, and exploring the Tongass whenever possible. Come say hi!
