Kirsten Raye

Executive Officer


It’s not everyday that you find a group of people that have the heart and energy to do more, but that’s what I found when I walked into KPBA. What a great group of people! Each day I find myself challenged to do more for my members, my leadership and my community. It’s been an incredible journey so far!

I was in the Air Force nearly 15 years, stationed all over the world. On September 11, 2001 I arrived in Alaska and it has been home pretty much ever since (minus a side assignment in a couple “overseas” locations since then). My four daughters and I moved to Kenai in 2007 and I’m happy to say that they all come back home at least once a year and my grandchildren are nearby. Pretty blessed!

I pursued a Bachelors and Masters in Information Technology/Project Management and it has helped me tremendously in this position. KPBA is modernizing, becoming more accessible to our members and the community, and gaining momentum – which is THRILLING! I encourage everyone to stop in or give us a call – get to know who we are, what we do, and how we’re helping the community. I promise, there’s value in having the conversation.

In the 42 years since KPBA started, Kirsten has spent the following percentage of time as:
