Student Success Facilitator
Stephanie Sanderlin was raised in Dillingham, Alaska as part of a subsistence and commercial fishing family. After earning her bachelor's degree in English Teaching from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, Stephanie returned to Alaska to serve in public education where she spent 14 years as a classroom teacher for the Anchorage School district. In addition to her duties in the classroom, Stephanie was a member of several curriculum review and teacher leadership committees and wrote the curriculums for two required novels in Anchorage School District 7th grade language arts classes. She also worked as a middle school cross-country running coach and spent summers working for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and the Alaska Native Heritage Center.
In the fall of 2012, Stephanie moved to the University of Alaska Anchorage School of Nursing to work for Recruitment and Retention of Alaska Natives into Nursing. Due to the incredible role nurses play in healthcare, Stephanie is eager to help Alaska Native and American Indian students as they pursue and earn their nursing degrees.
