The Duchess Guide started in 2008 when I arrived in Los Angeles and has continued on as I moved home to Anchorage, Alaska in 2012. While many adventures are based around my home town of Anchorage, I do a lot of exploring state wide. Everything from berry picking and learning to make jam in the Chugach Mountains, to halibut fishing in Homer and running in the rainboot race in Ketchikan.
I am passionate about aviation and currently in the process of getting my private pilot’s license fromArctic Flyers, located at the busiest Seaplane Base in the world; Lake Hood, Alaska. I love exploring Alaska; fishing, flying, hiking – usually with my Yellow Lab, Betty.
I love my home state and help the organizations that are here to protect and preserve it. If you don’t know about the Pebble Mine proposed project in Bristol Bay, Alaska … take a moment to familiarize yourself with it here.
I can be reached for questions, comments, projects or the sharing of good jokes at:Jill@theduchessguide.com. I’m excited to meet other adventurous and amazing Alaskans who like to capture the essence of our amazing state, too!
