Leah will serve Fairbanks from August 5, 2019-August 3, 2020. Year-long VISTAs perform indirect service focusing on capacity building. Stay tuned for updates as their year progresses!
Leah Shaffer, Project Development Specialist
Leah joined the VISTA team here in Fairbanks on August 5th after moving up from St. Louis, Missouri. She will be working at Fairbanks Soil and Water Conservation District (FSWCD) as a Project Development Specialist, helping to get their urban hydroponic farm project up and running. Leah is psyched to experience her first Alaskan winter and is planning to make the most of it by ice skating on the river, fat biking, and learning to ski.
Please don't laugh at her if you watch her fall off her fat bike in the snow.
