Welcome Andrew Ackerman, Environmental Manager
Andrew and his family have lived in Alaska for the last seven years. His three children, ages 7, 10, and 12, attend local Fairbanks schools and his wife is an elementary education tutor. They are very involved in local sports, community events, and outdoor activities all year.
Most recently, Andrew worked as a research scientist with the US Department of the Interior in central and northwest Alaska conducting field studies on federal lands. He feels very fortunate to have visited many remote areas of Alaska and to have learned about village life. Before coming to Alaska, Andrew worked in community planning with a city government in Idaho and as an environmental consultant in California.
Andrew says he has really enjoyed living in Fairbanks because of the great schools, the variety of community, cultural and sporting events, and the endless outdoor adventures nearby.
