A lifelong Alaskan, born in Ketchikan, she has lived all over the state including growing up and practicing law in Fairbanks and serving as a State Representative for Anchorage. Since becoming a U.S. Senator, she has served on a number of committees including the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Senate Labor, Health, and Pensions Committee, and Indian Affairs Committees. She earned a B.A. in economics from Georgetown
University in 1980 and a law degree from Willamette University in 1985.
The Walter J. Hickel Award for Distinguished Public Policy Leadership was established in 1999 to recognize the contributions and achievements of individuals who have played a significant role in advancing Alaska's public policy interests.
