The Alutiiq Museum has hired Rosanne Wilson as its assistant director. Wilson, who joined the museum’s staff this week, will oversee the organization’s daily business as a member of the museum’s management team. Her responsibilities include financial operations, grant management, human resources, facilities care, and sponsorships.
Wilson, a member of the Agdaagux Tribe, grew up in the southwest Alaska community of King Cove. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2009 and a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Alaska Anchorage in 2010.
She has more than six years of management experience. Wilson’s previous employers include the Human Resources departments at Providence Health and Services Alaska, LifeMed Alaska, and most recently, the Alaskan Native Tribal Health Consortium. After work, Wilson enjoys spending time with her family, exploring the outdoors, creating Native art, and oil painting.
Wilson is excited to move to Kodiak. She said, “King Cove was my home until I attended UAF in 2005. Community involvement was the foundation of my confidence and sense of security. It is important for me to work where I can share my love of Alaska and continue to improve life here.”
The Alutiiq Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and sharing the history and culture of the Alutiiq, an Alaska Native tribal people. Representatives of Kodiak Alutiiq organizations govern the museum with funding from charitable contributions, memberships, grants, contracts, and sales.
