Welcome to Kodiak College!  We are so excited you have chosen us to help you advance your personal, professional, and educational goals.  We know you could choose from a variety of institutions across the country and are proud that you have chosen to trust us with this part of your future story.  Each of us at KoC take that trust seriously and are committed to serving you.  Students first isn’t just something we say – it’s something we believe and endeavor to embody in the ways teach and engage you. 

COVID has changed our lives significantly.  But one thing I am proud to say has not changed is the quality education you will receive here.  I encourage you to reach out to your faculty and ask for help.  Connect with staff and seek support.  We miss seeing your faces, and we welcome the opportunity to help you if you find a roadblock in front of you. 

As the new director, I encourage you to reach out to me and say hello.  And I’m not just saying that because it seems like ‘the thing to say’.  I packed up my life and moved to an island in the Gulf of Alaska because the faculty and staff I met in my interview seemed so passionate about the work they do for you.  I wanted to work with people who care that much about their community; I wanted to make their community mine.  And now you are.  You are mine, and I am yours.  So, connect with me and let me help you in whatever way that might be. 

You can call or you can email or send me a message through this form.

I’d be thrilled to hear your voice!
