KALLANDER & ASSOCIATES
MANAGING DIRECTOR at
(423) 443-6230 [m]
Raised on the Kenai Peninsula, Caroline returned to Alaska in 2018 after completing a Bachelor of Art’s degree from the University of Notre Dame and a Certificate of Social Studies & Humanities from Institut d’Études Politiques (Sciences Po).
In addition to her roles with Arctic Encounter and Kallander & Associates, Caroline is the Associate Director of the University of Alaska Center for Rural Collaboration, a non-academic center focused on strengthening the blue economies of Alaska’s coastal communities. Much of her time is spent traveling in rural Alaska and facilitating conversations and workshops for village leaders and regional and state-wide stakeholders. She is also the co-founder of 49th Rising, an Alaska-based organization that both provides a platform for survivors of sexual violence to tell their stories and collaborates with stakeholders and legislators on policy solutions for Alaskans.
Also a graduate student at the University of Alaska, Caroline is currently finishing her master’s thesis, which is a comparative analysis of salmon subsistence policy in Alaska and Norway.
Given the opportunity, Caroline would move to the Arctic tomorrow.
