Alie Kubichek is a disability advocate at SAIL, the Disability Network of the U.P. She is originally from Menominee but moved to Marquette to attend Northern Michigan University for Social Work and human behavior.

Alie is very passionate about helping people with disabilities, empowering them, and helping to eliminate barriers to independence.She has a lot of direct care experience and working with persons with disabilities holds a special place in her heart. When Alie was a child, her father was in an accident and was a person who lived with quadriplegia. Being a part of the disability community was her whole life and inspired her to help others as a career. Alie is excited to help consumers and work alongside them to help them achieve their goals. As Alie would say “there’s no lemon so sour that you can’t make something resembling lemonade”.

Alie spends most of her free time enjoying the outdoors, camping, hiking, or kayaking with her sweet kitties and their cat dad. She also enjoys playing guitar, ukulele + piano, and embroidering.


What Our Team Has To Say.

"I want to improve acceptance, community integration and employment opportunities for people in my community who have disabilities. They are individuals with strengths and challenges just like everyone else."
Kris Keranen
"As an intern at SAIL, I have been able to direct many people toward programs or organizations that may help people live more independently. Every time a goal is accomplished, the feeling of success is totally noticeable. Even with one client at a time, the community is noticing that this organization cares about our clients and the communities in which they serve."
Jennifer Webber
"Disability Network has allowed me to share ways to deal with social issues, given me new ideas about technology and other accommodations, helped me to share and release stress, and increased my self esteem."
