Board of Directors:


Terry Wright, Director 2019-2021

Terry and her husband Jim are retired and live in Alaska. She enjoys social media, reading, needlepoint, sewing and traveling.  Terry has one daughter with three daughters and Jim has three daughters with two and one son.


Terry was introduced to the AKK in 1993. She found an article that featured Linda Spurlin and her kennel in Wasilla, Alaska with these amazing small adorable dogs. In August 1996, Terry and Jim adopted their first Klee Kai, Crystal Nakit Alasco and shortly after added Kortok to the family. Terry and her husband joined AKKAOA in 1996. Then, in 2001 they added Taku to the family. She has previously served on the BOD in various positions and also became the newsletter editor, a position that she held for 16 years. She was influential in creating the club’s first set of Bylaws, logo and then launching the club’s website. Over the years she was heavily involved in planning annual meetings, raffles, seminars, specialty events, conformation shows, and much more. Her passions for AKKAOA activities have led her all over the country so she knows AKK owners in pretty much every state! Terry has, without a doubt, been a huge asset to the club in the past and is excited to once again be joining the BOD.
