What is Your Sundog Story?
Part of the Sundog team since February, 2010 – My Sundog story began over 25 years ago. Cathy and I were roommates in college. Joe and my husband were friends when they were kids, and owned their first business (a house painting company) together. We all remained friends after Joe and Cathy moved to Alaska, so it was natural after so many years of working together in various capacities to come aboard Sundog Media and lend a hand where needed. I love working for people and a company who have such integrity and deep appreciation for family. It’s really good to be able to be proud of both my employer and the amazing websites we produce.
What is Your Alaska Story?
I have only visited the beautiful (and enormous) state of Alaska for a total of about a week. However, I can see how my dear friends have fallen in love with the fascinating people, engaging culture, and stunningly beautiful landscapes. I experience Alaska through each local website we create and really enjoy getting to know every client and business through their projects.
What Do You Do For Fun?
I play and teach volleyball, read several books every week, listen to people, drink coffee, and spend time with family and friends. I also do a little writing. I’ve recently had a children’s picture book published, Little Mouse Finds a Friend, Book 1. When I do editing work for Sundog Media, my writing style of meticulous attention to detail and nuance comes into play.
How Did You Get Into This Gig?
To be honest, I was a little reticent about working for friends at first. If things don’t work out it can really wreck an irreplaceable relationship. But Joe talked me into a helping out just a few minutes a week, and then it became an hour, and now its many hours a week. Joe and Cathy are very easy to work with and I have never had a moment of regret. I also really enjoy working with all the talented people on our team. They amaze me almost every day with the things they can accomplish in a website design.
Where Do You Get Your Inspiration?
As a Christian, my inspiration comes from constant amazement at who God is and what He has created. I believe every person is precious and irreplaceable, that every moment is another opportunity for joy. Life is always an adventure for me.
