Marian Hunter joined the Foundation in April 2012, working at the same time with the nonprofit Alaska Museum of Science and Nature to build its accounting records. The latter project lasted about four years. She has extensive experience with business and accounting processes and has been involved with a number of nonprofits over the years including Eagle River Nordic Ski Club, for which she served as treasurer. She used to own a construction company.

Marian is a lifelong Alaskan who can’t imagine living anywhere else. She is amazed by the sheer beauty of Alaska every day. She is training her dog, Ollie, to be a therapy dog. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Al, family and friends. She also relishes cross country skiing, gardening, cooking, reading, quilting, traveling and being outdoors.
