Technician of the Year
Mandi Seethaler is a CPS technician from the Alaska Injury Prevention Center – the busiest fitting station in Alaska. She was certified as a CPS technician in 2010, and in the last two years has checked more than 300 child safety seats all throughout the state, often traveling great distances in harsh weather conditions. Through her work at the Alaska Injury Prevention Center, Mandi helps host the annual Alaska CPS Conference, where CPS technicians from all throughout the state travel hundreds of miles to attend. The conference presents an opportunity for Alaska CPS technicians to learn together and share stories of how technicians work through the challenges with small communities to encourage families to safely secure their children. Mandi lives in Anchorage with her husband, Thad, and 16-year-old son, Kolin.
