Doyon Foundation is pleased to welcome two new members to our team in Fairbanks: Catherine Moses, our new administrative assistant, and Lucy Miller, the project manager of our new language mentor-apprentice program. Both joined the Foundation in December 2021.

Catherine Moses, Administrative Assistant

Catherine, from Hooper Bay, graduated from Mt. Edgecumbe High School and obtained her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Prior to joining the Foundation, Catherine was the office manager at ANC Accounting, a receptionist at Woodland Wellness Center, and a teacher with the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.

“Teaching and learning brings me great joy,” she said. “Being a part of the Doyon Foundation team will allow me to continue sharing that joy with students by supporting them in a new role.”

Lucy Miller, Mentor-Apprentice Program Project Manager

Lucy relocated to Fairbanks from her hometown of Berkeley, California, to be the project manager of our new language mentor-apprentice program.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in romance languages and a minor in South Asian studies from New York University, as well as a master’s degree in linguistics, with a focus on language documentation and conservation, from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa.

From 2015 – 2017, Lucy served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon, where she worked as a language teacher and developed after-school programs focused on women’s health and empowerment. Most recently, Lucy worked as a teacher at a French-English bilingual school in California.

“I am honoured to work with Doyon Foundation and I look forward to supporting shareholders working to reclaim Native languages,” she said.

Please join us in welcoming Catherine and Lucy to the Foundation family!
