Anna Schumacher (she/they) is our 2022-2023 Living with the Land and Building Community Coordinator through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest. She serves as a leader of the Alaska Way of Life 4-H Club, a collaboration between Sitka Conservation Society and University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension.

Anna grew up on the blustery plains of northern Minnesota, where her family and community instilled a deep love and respect for the natural world in her. This love and respect has led her many places - senators’ offices to oppose mining in wilderness areas, pipeline resistance camps, and now, SCS! Anna holds a degree in Psychology from Carleton College, and she is most interested in the interactions between our environment and personal and collective wellbeing. She is passionate about all things aligned with liberation and community building, and enjoys flexing her creative muscle by repurposing old things. Anna is deeply grateful for the opportunity to live and learn in the community of Sitka, and looks forward to building connections with the people, plants and animals that call this place home.
