Retail

Shopping is an activity that can be enjoyed in all climates. Due to the rural nature of the state, retail in Alaska relies almost as heavily on e-commerce as it does on brick-and-mortar malls and storefronts.

Goss started working at Anchorage’s largest hospital in 1997 as an ER nurse and rose through the ranks of management. Providence has intentionally promoted female leaders from within, she says, developing their potential because the talent pool in Alaska is so small due to the state’s population.
