District Manager – Tiffany Brand

Tiffany is an all around Alaskan gal. Her journey to Alaska took a pit stop in a small logging town in the central mountains of Oregon before landing her on Afognak island as a pre-teen. She has lived and worked on the Kenai Peninsula since 1996, spending the years learning and exploring in the areas of habitat protection, agriculture, home scale farming, wild harvesting, and other areas of conservation and sustainability. Her passion lies in enjoying and protecting the lands we have the privilege of living on. If you cannot find her in the office she is likely where the water flows, sporting a fly rod in hand or a bucket of seashells.
