The Alaskan values of hard work, freedom and integrity have been Rebecca’s north star in every endeavor. Representative Rebecca Himschoot has lived in Sitka for 24 years where she has worked as an educator, with a focus in elementary, English language and science education. She has served on several boards as well as the Sitka assembly. On January 17, 2023, Rebecca took the oath of office and became a member of the Alaska House of Representatives. She is excited to use her unique experiences as an educator, community leader, outdoor enthusiast, and admirer of all things Alaska in her work for the people and communities of the very dynamic and beautiful House District 2 and those of all Alaskans. Rebecca’s commitment to an excellent education for every student is illustrated through numerous local, state and nation awards and recognition.

Rebecca gained experience in local government as a member of the Sitka city assembly. Her time on the assembly was an invaluable opportunity for her to gain further insight into many of the issues facing residents of Southeast Alaska, including rural, coastal, remote, and mid-sized communities. As an assembly member she had great opportunity to come to further understand the essential role of government through her work with other community members, tribal, state, and federal agencies in helping to improve the lives of all Alaskans. Rebecca considers the diversity of Southeast Alaska one of its greatest strengths.

Rebecca loves living in Southeast Alaska and when she is not working as an educator in Sitka, or in Juneau as a legislator, she enjoys the mountains and waters of the region -no matter the weather. She has been known to occasionally skip the sun or rain enjoying a good book or time with friends and family.
