Alberta’s dissertation was entitled, Alaska Native Scholars: A Mixed-Methods Investigation of Factors Influencing Ph.D. Attainment.  She is Tsimshian (killer whale phratry, Gishbudwada), Alutiiq, Hispanic, Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, and German. She received a Mellon Dissertation Fellowship Scholar from the U. of Alaska Fairbanks during her dissertation writing phase. She also received scholarships from Koniag Educational Foundation during her graduate programs.

She looks forward to now having time to do other things as she finished her doctoral program. She will now work on publishing her research work. Alberta and Peter (husband) enjoy traveling, particularly to other countries with exploring their landscapes and culture. Alberta greatly enjoys sports, cooking, and anything having to do with Jane Austen.
