ABOUT

Welcome to Fat Cat!

 

Like every Fat Cat, we believe in the good things in life: long naps, good meals and a delectable ball of catnip to chase after. That’s right, we think our customers can have it all! So while you may not find catnip on our menu, we do offer up something for everyone.

 

Our hand-tossed pizzas are made fresh to order and baked crisp in our brick oven. All of our menu items are homemade from fresh ingredients, purchased locally whenever possible. Everything from cocktails to croutons are made by hand, right here in our kitchen.

Welcome to Strengthening Families

Jaime Browning, LMSW

 

While born and raised in Oregon, Jaime has chosen Alaska as home and to raise her own family. During her spare time she travels both internationally and statewide, focusing on cultural exchanges and studies. Jaime is an avid sailor, also enjoying Alaska's vast playground. 

Jaime earned her undergraduate from Wichita State University, followed by a Masters of Social Work from the University of Alaska Anchorage. 

Jaime's career began in Kansas, working in both outpatient mental health and child abuse prevention. From there, Jaime began a career in child protection of Alaska's children for 13 years. This lead to a specialization in domestic violence, mental health, child abuse/neglect, and substance abuse. She has been recognized by the courts many times as an expert witness under the Indian Child Welfare Act.

 

Jaime has spent much time in the villages, creating relationships and cultural connections with Alaska Native families and tribes. Jaime is proud to work with families of the LGBTQ community.

Jaime has completed training in both mediation and Parenting Coordination through the Cooperative Parenting Institute and has completed Certification in Child & Family Forensics through William James College. She is a member of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, National Association of Social Workers, and International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
