Hello! We are the Bybee's. Thank you Igiugig for being so welcoming to our family. We've had a great summer so far! Here is a little bit about who we are. Amanda was born in Eugene, Oregon. Her parents uprooted and moved to Alaska in 1990. We lived in Takotna, Alaska for a few years before moving to McGrath where Amanda and her 2 siblings were raised.
Chris was born in Seward, Alaska. His ancestry shows that his family comes from Ouzinkie area! Chris was raised in Coos Bay, Oregon. Amanda and Chris met in 2005 and have been together ever since. We have 3 wonderful children; Colton (15), Denali (12) and Trevor (10).
Chris and Amanda have raised their kids in McGrath, Alaska. Amanda has been a Community Health Aide since 2013. Before that she was an EMT and volunteering for the KVRS Rescue Squad. She enjoys teaching EMS, being in the great outdoors with her family. We are an active family who enjoy camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, traveling and spending quality time with each other. We have 2 dogs; Ellie and Ruger and one cat; Thomas.
In 2018 we decided we wanted to see more of our beautiful state. We moved to the Prince William Sound, on a tiny island called Chenega. We stayed there about 9 months before venturing off to the mainland in Tatitlek - which is between Valdez and Cordova, right at the base of Copper Mountain. Tatitlek is such a wonderful and beautiful place. Amanda's job had her traveling quite a bit (being the PWS EMS Coordinator/Instructor as well as running the clinic as a CHP) which was hard on the family. When Igiugig clinic position came open we jumped at the opportunity and we are so glad we did. So here we are, and we are loving it!
