SIDNEY ROTH

Founder, Host

KELSEY NELSON

Administrative Coordinator

Being born and raised in Palmer, Alaska, I am passionate about seeing growth in our community. Although I am not a business owner myself yet (Rachel Hollis would be proud of me for adding this short and powerful word), Landmark Collective has allowed me to dream bigger and has given me purpose in my role outside of motherhood. 

 

When I’m not working, I’m a mama bear to two beautiful children and a wife of ten years. I am a true crime and Grey’s Anatomy junkie, addicted to coffee, love having deep and meaningful conversations, enjoy trying new recipes with my husband, and nothing beats a good sweat.

KASARA BERTELS

Creative Director

I am a born and raised Alaskan and currently live in Sutton with my husband and 2 year old son with our two corgis and our chickens! Currently, I own and operate The Teal Door, which specializes in floral design, as well as KB Fit, celebrating women’s fitness. I enjoy being my own boss and sharing the beauty of entrepreneurship with others in my community. 

 

I love working with different mediums to bring any creative vision to life. I have a passion for all things design and always found comfort in expressing myself through my art. I cannot wait to work with my fellow female entrepreneurs!
