Board Member & Lands Committee Vice Chair

Mike Mauseth, a Financial Advisor at Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC, is a believer in sustainability. Though he used to be on the development side of things, he likes that a land trust can create a win-win opportunity for landowners who wish to protect their property in perpetuity. Mike has lived in Juneau for over 20 years and says he loves that “Alaska is big, beautiful, and wild and offers up a never ending smorgasboard of climbing, skiing, and fishing opportunities.” An avid climber, Mike has probably climbed to the summit of all the peaks in Juneau and is preparing for Denali in the spring. He and his wife Kym have raised two daughters, Ashley and Megan, in Juneau and love the tight-knit community. Mike joined SEAL Trust’s Board in 2011.
