Amanda Taylor shipwrecked!

Amanda Taylor arrived in Sitka  from Minnesota as an AmeriCorps volunteer about three years ago.

We’re lucky to have Amanda in the community and we all got to know her a little better when she agreed to share her wishlist if she was shipwrecked on a “dessert-ed” island and had only ten songs and one dessert to fill her days.
