Cindy Boesser was one of only a few women to operate heavy machinery for Alyeska when the pipeline was under construction. She's co-authored a textbook. She's clog-danced across Russia with the Alaska Performing Artists for Peace, accompanied by Jay and Bella Hammond. Boesser does stained glass. She's done trips on myriad rivers, and throughout what is now the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She's helped build houses-and helped design the firehouse- in Gustavus. Boesser studied in Russia as the Soviet Union was falling apart. After her son was born, she ran one of the first nationally accredited family day cares in Southeast. And now she works as circulation desk supervisor at Egan Library.
