Dr. Kemper recently moved to Klawock from Spokane, Wash., where she spent 13 years working for the Indian Health Service and the Spokane Tribe. She is the proud mother of four and a grandmother of two. Her husband will be a fishing guide for a lodge in Craig.

Dr. Kemper said the reason she took the job with SEARHC was a "desire to move back to Alaska" and to live in a "small community to raise our children." She previously worked for the Kodiak Native Clinic that's run by the Kodiak Area Native Association.

She graduated from Hahnemann College of Medicine, which became part of Philadelphia's Drexel University in 2002. She completed her residency in Chicago. Dr. Kemper is a family practice physician. In addition to her work in Spokane and Kodiak, Dr. Kemper also has worked in a small town in Idaho.

Dr. Kemper said her medical special interests include electronic health records and improvement in comprehensive medical documentation for total patient care.

Her personal special interests are spiritual development and computer graphics.
