Lisa Demer landed at the Anchorage Daily News in 1994 when she arrived in Alaska with her husband and two young children, who grew up in the state. She writes a bit about most everything: Alaska's resources and politics, sexual abuse and suicide, mega-projects and land-use conflicts, wolf populations and salmon runs. She grew up in the U.S. South but connects to Alaska's wild lands, big snows and rich cultures. Now she wants to explore the economy, politics and life in the Yukon-Kuskokwim region. She loves to work and to play too, especially running, yoga and gardening. Eating fresh-caught salmon cooked on a cedar plank makes her especially happy.
