Nov. 4, 2021 — Maggie Holeman — Author of Woman in the Locker Room: An Alaskan Woman’s Journey for Change

Growing up in a challenging family gave Maggie Holeman the determination to go against the system and prevail. During her career at the Anchorage airport, Maggie was instrumental in getting separate bathrooms, locker rooms, and hair regulations for women. Maggie was the first woman to achieve the award of weapon proficiency, being top gun, at the Sitka Police Academy.

She developed and became one of the first field training officers at that airport in both police and fire. Maggie received a legislative commendation for bravery for her response to the YC-122 crash. After earning her BA in criminal justice, she worked as an adult probation/parole officer for the State of Alaska and Boy’s Detention at McLaughlin Youth Center. After 23 years with the State of Alaska, Maggie retired to the small community of Hope, Alaska, population 150, where she runs a five-star bed and breakfast and finds her days peaceful without turmoil.
