New Staff in Anchorage

Koniag is happy to welcome three new people to the Anchorage office. Josh Hanson and Brittany Horne will both be working as interns and Yolanda Inga is our new Office Administrator/Receptionist. Be sure to stop by and say Hi if you have a chance!

My name is Joshua Hanson and I’m 24 years old. I was born in Anchorage and spent time living in Palmer and Kodiak before moving to Eagle River where my family has stayed since 1999. As a young boy, I enjoyed staying active and I developed a love for sports. Every month of the year seemed to be filled with baseball tryouts, soccer games, football practices, and hockey tournaments. In 6th grade, I developed an interest in music as well, prompting me to join every school band I could. After graduating from West High School in Anchorage in 2010, I moved to Portland, Oregon where I spent September through May of every year playing junior hockey in the Western Hockey League. In 2015 I enrolled in the University of Toronto down in Ontario, Canada. I’ve finished 3 years of university and I’ve almost completed a double major in Economics and Statistics. My education and my love for sports has taking me around the world. I’ve been across Canada, bounced around the rest of the United States, and even spent some time in Europe. However, no matter where I go, I’m always counting down the days until I can come home to Alaska. I still enjoy playing music and sports, but when I’m home in Eagle River, I spend as much time as I can outside just enjoying this great state. I like hiking, golfing, camping, and fishing with my siblings.

Hi, my name is Brittany Horne. I was born and raised on Kodiak Island and am currently a student at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. I am the daughter of Jana Turvey and granddaughter of the late Norma Peterson. I am entering my senior year, studying accounting and business administration with a concentration in law and public policy. I am also beginning my Masters in Taxation this coming fall at Gonzaga. When I am not studying or working, I enjoy hiking, fishing, and running.
