LISA NELSON - Director

Lisa Nelson was born in Anchorage to the parents of James and Deanna Nelson.  She is the granddaughter of Jerry and Helena Nelson.  Lisa moved from Yakutat during her early childhood years but was lucky enough to visit in the summers once she was older.  She graduated high school at Skyline High in Mesa, Arizona and began college at Northern Arizona University.  Lisa finished her Bachelor’s degree at Evergreen State College in 2010.

For the last six years, she has gillnetted in Yakutat and has enjoyed learning what it means to have pride in being a part of a community such as this one.  Lisa is newly employed with Sitka Couseling and Prevention Services as a Yakutat Behavioral Health Tech.  She is looking forward to working with Shareholders and fellow Board Members in the upcoming years.
