Libby was born and raised in Anchorage and continues to make Alaska her home. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude from Yale University with a degree in American Studies, she returned to Alaska to work in diverse fields, including as a print and television reporter, radio consultant, nuclear weapons educator and writer on Alaska Native issues. She currently conducts concerts and workshops on a range of important topics at universities nationwide and assists with faculty training at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Libby has been a finalist for the Alaska Woman of Achievement Award as well as the national Green Dove award for individuals whose work eloquently combines psychology, spirituality, ecology and creativity. Libby is also very accomplished recording artist whose music is known around the world. Her music has been featured in Pulitzer-prize winning books, at the U.N. Conference in Beijing, in Washington D.C. with Coretta Scott King, and even on Mars, where NASA played one of her songs to “encourage” the Spirit research robot. As a board member of Musicians United to Save the Environment, her music and skills have been used to raise money to support wilderness preservation efforts in the U.S. In addition to her music, Libby is a renowned writer, one of 225 international authors chosen to contribute to a book entitled Prayers for a Thousand Years: Inspiration from Leaders and Visionaries Around the World. Other contributors to that work included the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
