Hamler maintains a professional membership with the American Society of Heating,
Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers
When she is not working, Hamler enjoys
being outside, mountain biking, cross country skiing, sea kayaking, and ultimate Frisbee. Ultimate Frisbee is a team sport Hamler
began playing in college and has been a favorite pastime since. In the mid-1990s, Hamler contributed to the formation of the Anchorage Ultimate Frisbee Club, a nonprofit
organization that continues to thrive. Always
a “tinkerer,” Hamler took her interests to the
next level by designing and building an off-the-grid home for her family near Talkeetna.
The home continues to provide a quiet refuge
from a busy world.
Founded in 1950, Hamler’s sponsor, SWE,
is a nonprofit service organization dedicated
to the advancement of women in the engineering profession. SWE aims to encourage
women into engineering and leadership, expand the image of engineering as a positive
force in improving the quality of life, and
demonstrating the value of diversity.
