2020 Incoming Members ASID Alaska Board of Directors

Get to know the incoming ASID Alaska Board Members for FY2020


President-Elect (1 year term)


Natasha Schmidt, NCIDQ, ASID, LEED Green Associate

I will focus on deepening my knowledge of the inter-workings of our Alaska Chapter in order to be an effective and highly-productive leader as President in 2021. I will look for opportunities to improve the value of membership at all levels, strengthen and broaden the connections within our membership, chapter sponsors, community and to the ASID organization as a whole. I look forward to this opportunity continuing to serve on the ASID Alaska board of directors and the challenge of a new position serving our Chapter.



Communications Director (2 year term)

Nicole Allen, Allied ASID

I plan on continuing the momentum of my predecessor and continue to actively  engage our community on social media. I know that a lot of planning and preparation has been established for this position, I intend to continue to use the tools provided and create additional resources for the future. I will work hand-in-hand with my president and board to ensure valuable information is being shared with our membership and the community.  


Finance Director (2 year term)

Melissa Pribyl, NCIDQ, ASID, WELL AP, CDT

My key goals would be to build upon the foundation of those that have served on the board before me.  Although a small chapter, we have strived as a membership to be in financial health, and to promote local award recognition and scholarships.  I would like to expand these programs with creative ways of sponsorship and fundraising.  I would also like to install a new way of financial communication to our membership at large to keep them updated on our financial health, goals, and upcoming needs.  This would largely benefit our membership to allow the ASID Alaska board to invest in stronger CEU opportunities and workshops that have been requested by our at large population. 


Professional Development Director (2 year term)

Casey Kee, NCIDQ, ASID

Casey is a Junior Interior Designer at McCool Carlson Green Architecture I Design. Born into a Military family, she has spent most of her life out of the state of Alaska, however has recently returned home to Anchorage and is excited to plug into her community. She attended university at IWU in Indiana where she graduated in 2018 with honors with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. A recent graduate, Casey has interned with MCG for 2 previous seasons, worked at Halstead Architecture in Indiana and now has returned to MCG full time as their newest Interior Designer.

Casey is an eager learner as she dives into the world of Interior Design. While still developing as a rising professional, she enjoys the challenges of learning the details of the projects and making a personal connection with clients. She tries to provide unique, personalized designs for her clients and it’s an element of her job that she enjoys and continues to cultivate. As she expands her professional influence, she is eager to pour into her community through local volunteer opportunities and especially in the roll as Director of Professional Development for the Alaska chapter of ASID.

In her spare time, she enjoys creating written and visual art, hiking or exploring local & seasonal events in the area.
