Kelly Wagner

Grants Manager

Phone: (907) 334-0526


Kelly Wagner has served in clerical positions in both the public and private sector for her entire career, primarily working in education with high school students. One of her most rewarding positions was helping inner-city students attain their college diplomas at a middle college in Flint, Mich., where students attend high school and college classes simultaneously.

Originally from Michigan, Kelly briefly lived in Hawaii before moving to Alaska in 2009. She has lived in Wasilla, Kenai, Seward, Anchorage and Delta Junction. She is still thrilled by the beauty of Alaska and enjoys exploring new areas of the state. In her spare time, Kelly loves hiking with her husband, quilting, meeting people and learning about different cultures.
