Mayor Jim Matherly announces the hiring of Teal Soden as the Executive Assistant/ Communications Director for the City of Fairbanks. Teal Soden was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska. In 2005 she moved to Portland, Maine and started working for a large medical organization, InterMed. She started off in records and billing but eventually became the Executive Assistant to the CEO of InterMed in 2008. Although she loved the East Coast, she returned to Alaska in 2010 to be closer to her parents and siblings.
Teal has been working at the Fairbanks Police Department since 2010; she first worked in the Administrative Office and then on the Data Management Team.
