Hello! My name is Katie Roseberry. I live all the way at the top of Alaska, in Barrow. I have taken a few plant classes through my Ethnobotany certificate program, which I will be finishing up this summer with the help of this class. It’s been a while since I’ve taken ecology, so I look forward to re-familiarizing myself with biological plant terms. I completed a bachelors degree in biological sciences last year, with a focus on the human body, as I hope to make my way into the medical field someday. As for now, I am working at the local community college, Ilisagvik, and have recently been accepted into UAA’s bachelors of Dietetics program. I’ve had a special interest with the local plants around my community and am working to learn more about them to help revive their traditional uses as food and medicine. It’ll take a lot of patience and work, but I’m pretty set on this goal. I’ve also been trying to plan out a way to start a traditional medicine program at Ilisagvik College to make that knowledge more accessible to others. Below are my pups and I, Luna (black/white) and Phoenix (brown/white).
Nice to meet you all!
