Bio coming soon.
Karen Ferrell (Summerfeldt) started with Alaska Airlines in 1978 and has worked in many different positions and cities within the company. She began as a Reservation Agent in Seattle, worked as a Customer Service Agent, and commuted to Prudhoe Bay for 5 years before transferring to Anchorage and eventually becoming an Operations Agent.
During her time in operations in 1991, Karen took a temporary position as a Customer Service Supervisor to Magadan and helped establish service to what was still the Soviet Union in the Russian Far East. After 10 years in operations, it was “time for a change”, and Karen became a Flight Attendant in 1998.
Karen lives with her 19-year-old son Jaden. Her 23-year-old daughter Danielle is currently teaching English in Quito, Ecuador. She also lives with a Cocker Spaniel, a cat, a Hawk Head Parrot, and the occasional mouse (gifts from the cat!)
Lisa Pinkston has been a Flight Attendant at Alaska Airlines since 2005. She is married to “my best friend, Brian,” and she has two daughters, Kinsley born in 2007 and Keeley born in 2010, both of whom she describes as “wonderful.” Lisa loves living in Alaska and enjoys everything this beautiful state has to offer. Prior to joining Alaska Airlines, she held a number of positions in the insurance industry, including writing medical policies for Aetna, adjusting claims at Oklahoma Farm Bureau, and assisting the General Counsel in handling mediation, arbitration, and litigation at State Farm. Lisa has served as the ANC Benefits Chair, ANC VOICE/Mobilization Chair, ANC Vice President, ANC President and she is humbled and honored to now be serving as your Local Council 30 Secretary.
