Welcome to Olga Skinner, RSS Academic Advisor!

Here is a little of Olga's history:  I was raised going back and forth between Fairbanks and Kwethluk.  I have a bachelor's degree in foreign languages and master's degree in education from UAF.  Since I first got my bachelor's degree, I've worked for the Fairbanks school district and the past three years at the Geophysical Institute.  I live at home with my husband, Jon, our two children, Zak and Tenley, and our dog, Hagrid. I am really excited to be here and I look forward to meeting you!
