Patrick Flynn, Community Volunteer
Patrick Flynn, a lifelong Alaskan, has volunteered for and/or contributed to the United Way of Alaska for roughly 20 years (maybe more, maybe less; his memory is worsening as he ages). Having worked in fields as diverse as transportation & logistics, tourism, environmental consulting and state & local government he obviously can’t hold down a job and therefore identifies with others who encounter life’s challenges.

Jeannette B. Levine, Matson Navigation
I started at Matson, September 12, 2016. I am married and have one son.
I completed my BA in Accounting at the University of Alaska Anchorage and in the process of getting my MBA in Business Management. I worked in banking for 10 years – moved to non-profit as Audit Manager, then Accounting Manager for Hope Community Resources which provided me the experience to take on the Accounting and Business Process Management for Matson. My experience with Hope Community Resources gave me the insight for more compassion to those who are in need and have limited capabilities. I serve on their Board to continue to support their beliefs and values. I joined United Way of Anchorage Fundraising Cabinet as I believe it is a gateway in uniting non-profits, volunteers and other entities to combine resources to help solve major issues in our community.
