Izembek National Wildlife Refuge has been without an administrative assistant since November 2013. In addition to her normal workload, Alaska Peninsula/Becharof NWR’s Paige Livingston took on the extra duty of providing administrative support to Izembek.


She recently returned from a two week detail to Cold Bay, enlivened by the eruption of nearby Mount Pavlof, which meant that she helped prepare for a potential emergency along with her other duties! Izembek’s staff provided this summary of what Paige did for them:

During her detail, she worked closely with the Project Leader fine-tuning the budget tracking and insuring remaining balances were up-to-date and accurate; assisted with contracting questions, time and attendance, and purchase/travel questions; addressed IT needs and issues; and greeted and worked with the visiting public in addition to many other tasks. Paige’s skills, work quality, and products were professional and representative of the highest level of administrative support work. Paige was a self-starter, team player, and required virtually no supervision.”

We agree with Izembek’s assessment of her capability, and congratulate Paige on a job very well done!
