Angela Salazar

Angela Salazar, a lifelong Alaskan and community leader from Ketchikan, joined the Rasmuson Foundation board of directors in January 2021.

Angela is a member of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Grant Committee and the PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center advisory board. She has held board positions with the PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center Foundation, Greater Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce and Ketchikan-Kanayama Sister City Exchange, and was a member of First City Rotary. She also led the live auction for the hospital foundation’s annual Sole-Stice Event and supports the fundraising efforts of her children’s activities.

Angela graduated from Western Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts in business administration. Six days after graduation, she returned to Ketchikan and went to work for a local investment and insurance agency. Within five years, she owned the business, then sold it in 2010. Today, Angela and her business partner own and operate a commercial business park, air taxi service and tourism adventure businesses in Ketchikan. Angela was recognized in 2006 by the Alaska Journal of Commerce with a Top Forty Under 40 award and is a recipient of the Alaska Chamber of Commerce’s Bill Biven award which “pays tribute to Alaskan, independently owned businesses that demonstrate community involvement, leadership in their field, business, ethics, and organizational excellence.”

Angela enjoys traveling, hiking, boating, live music, football and supporting her children at whatever they do. Her proudest and most important accomplishment to date is raising her two children, Gavin and Tessa, with their dad, Brien.
