My name is Todd Gebler. I was born in Waterford, Pennsylvania and graduated from Fort Le Boeuf High School. Shorty after high school I enlisted in the United States Air Force and worked as an aircraft armament systems specialist spending most of my tours overseas. During my enlistment I proudly served in support of operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm loading munitions on aircraft.

After my time in the military, I pursued a career in healthcare. I earned an Associate of Science degree in respiratory care from Gannon University, Erie, Pennsylvania and later an Associate of Science in nursing and Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Alaska and Chamberlain University.

I currently work at SEARCH in the Home Health department as a registered nurse. My wife Kelly is a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist also currently working at SEARHC. We have an eight-year-old son named Rowen who will be attending Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary this school year. As a family we enjoy anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, fishing, boating, and chasing our dog Scout.

I am greatly honored to become a member of the Sitka School Board. With the current issues facing our nation during this pandemic, there’s not a better time than now to be a part of a solution. I will always strive to be a productive member of our community and an active advocate for our students. I believe our students are the future for this community and this nation.
