MSU alumna, Jackie Ebert - Master of Science, Geospatial Sciences - Physical Geography, Geology and GIS, with over 15 years of experience in environmental and wastewater sampling, permitting and compliance, will present a live-streamed seminar from Alaska. She is the seafood & aquaculture section lead, since 2019, and has been a wastewater permit writer with the state of Alaska for 10 years, primarily focused on seafood and aquaculture permitting.
Ebert will discuss her position with the state of Alaska and the program she is involved with. She will share the path she took to get to her professional position/career after attending Missouri State University. She is originally from Wisconsin, where she obtained her undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire with a comprehensive degree in resource management. Immediately upon completion of her master's degree here, she "drove to Alaska with her husband Pat, black lab Barley and their trusty Tacoma." They have been living in Juneau ever since (2010).
She most recently worked as the lead permit writer for the re-issuance of the AKG523000 Offshore Seafood Processors General permit and the issuance of the AKG521000 Onshore Seafood Processor in Alaska General Permit. Additionally, Ebert has over 10 years of volunteer mountain rescue experience throughout the state of Alaska, including serving as the president of the Board of Directors for Juneau Mountain Rescue (JMR) since 2019.
Outside of her position with the state of Alaska, she enjoys skiing as much as possible, running in the mountains, exploring Southeast Alaska in her boar, and harvesting all the wonderful seafood, meat and forage-able items Alaska has to offer.
