Carly hails from the ruggedly beautiful metropolis of Chugiak, Alaska, located just to the north of Anchorage. Carly came to SCS at the end of a jam-packed gap year she took after graduating high school. She's spent time volunteering abroad, shadowing a state representative, and working with the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council. Carly has also spent plenty of time working with the Alaska Center, as part of Alaska Youth for Environmental Action, and as part of the summer canvass team focused on Stand for Salmon and Pebble Mine. In 2018, she joined SCS as our Eco-Advocacy and Communications Intern through Alaska Conservation Foundation's Ted Smith Conservation Internship Program, and returned after her first year at Pitzer College as our Organizing Coordinator for summer 2019. This summer, Carly is back again as our Future of Alaska Policy Advocate.
Carly is euphoric to be back in Sitka, and to experience the best of cross-trail conviviality, commercial fishing, and community (socially distanced, of course).
