I have been the Executive Director at Nikiski Senior Center since December 2020. I bring a wealth of knowledge when it comes to grants, social services and community resources. I am also a long time Nikiski resident. I have an amazing husband and three beautiful children. My passion has always been to help people but working with individuals and families in my wonderful community is a privilege. Thank you all for the warm welcome!
I am Sue Tauriainen, Financial Officer, for Nikiski Senior Citizens, Inc. My husband, Ray, and I have been lifetime members of the center for 20 years. We are the proud parents of 3 loving children, their spouses and 13 grandchildren. My first experience in Alaska was 1967 & 1968. Ray spent his Army tour of duty in Anchorage at Ft Richardson. We returned to Nikiski, Alaska in May of 1977. I worked for over 30 years in fish plants, managing accounting offices. My current position at Nikiski SEnior Center began in August 2015. If I can be of assistance to you, please ask. I look forward to another great year serving the wonderful seniors at NSC. The candy dish is always open.
I am the Maintenance/Janitor at the Nikiski Senior Center. I have been doing this job for about 5 years now and enjoy everyone I work with. Over the years, I have met a lot of interesting people and like to help the seniors that come to the center. I hope to continue meeting and helping more seniors for many years to come.
I am the administrative assistant at the Nikiski Senior Center and have been working here for about 4 years. I am married and have one daughter who recently graduated from high school. I am a dog lover and currently have 3 in my home plus 1 cat. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and travel to Oregon as often as I can to spend time with my twin sister.
