Ashli Laducer is the interpretive coordinator at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center and Fort Mandan State Historic Site, where she does everything from fort maintenance to organizing school groups and group tours.

The mother of two wild (if adorable) children, she finds her happy time hiding in the bathroom.
