The Finance Office welcomes Rebecca Catlin!
September 30, 2022
Rebecca began her role as Executive Assistant on August 29. In this position, she assists office visitors, oversees issues in the Butrovich building, and manages the Chief Financial Officer’s calendar. When the new Controller is hired she will support that position as well. This work is supported by recent experience in retail management and directing camps in Austin, TX and Kenosha, WI.
Rebecca was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. She spent her teen years in Brigham City, Utah. As an adult, she has moved frequently. In September 2019 she drove 5000 miles diagonally from Georgia to Alaska with her dog.
Her formal education includes a certificate in Baking and Pastry Arts from the Oregon Culinary Institute and a stint studying nutrition at Arizona State University. She plans to pursue a Interdisciplinary Studies degree from UAF.
Rebecca and her partner, Sean, along with their two dogs – Ygritte, an 8 year-old husky, and Kenai, a 4 month-old bernedoodle puppy – are renovating their creekside cabin in Ester. She describes herself as an insatiably curious person who enjoys learning, reading, and trivia.
“Ask me anything about anything, and I’ll be down for a conversation. I love to hear people talk about their passions,” she said.
We’re looking forward to seeing what she cooks up in this new role. Welcome Rebecca!
