Personal Life

Alaskan, through and through. Growing up in Anchorage, Val is the daughter of a commercial bush pilot and a villager. She spent much of her childhood exploring Bristol Bay Borough, her mother’s hometown.

During high school, Val worked every summer at a remote and internationally-recognized lodge in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Afterward, she attended North Park University in Chicago, Ill. and received a Bachelor of Science in Advertising, with an emphasis in Creative Design.

In her free time, she fishes for everything from hammerhead sharks in Florida to trout in Alaska. She tries to fill her freezer by hunting for organic, free-range wild game. Her favorite place to find adventure in Alaska is Delta Junction.

Val met her husband, Brennan, while skiing in Girdwood. They live in Anchorage with a very active toddler.

Side Hustles

With her husband, Val owns and operates Kicksled Alaska. Kicksledding is best shared with others, which is why they decided to import Finnish kicksleds to Alaska. Val built the communications outreach plan for the business and designed the logo and e-commerce website. Check it out:
