stephanie pliEness / External Affairs
My name is Stephanie Plieness, and I’m originally from sunny South Florida and have been living in Anchorage since December 2013. My husband and I moved here for a job opportunity within his company from Denver, Colo., shortly after getting married. We have one fur child named Elby, our Springer Spaniel.
This is my third year with APWA and as a board member. With my career in public relations, I'm excited to serve as the organization's first External Affairs Standing Committee Director this year. I'll also be helping out with the Welcome Committee helping folks get to know the organization and all it has to offer.
When not working as an account manager at a local PR agency or participating in APWA activities, I’m generally off exploring Alaska. I enjoy hiking, running, fishing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, cooking, shopping and experiencing all that this great state has to offer.
