Treasurer – Kim Kraaier

Kim is a business and finance professional with more than 10 years of experience in operations management, agribusiness, accounting, software migration, and new business development.  She has worked for several Fortune 500 companies, with two of the newest start-up companies in the Texas Panhandle, and currently works for a growing pharmaceutical company headquartered in Amarillo.

When Kim isn’t working with Pride, she spends her time traveling, reading and designing the next company that she wants to build.  Kim is relatively new to the Texas Panhandle, having moved here in December of 2015.  She became involved with Panhandle Pride, Inc. in April of 2016 and was voted into office as the organization’s Treasurer at the same time.

Kim shares the vision of her fellow Board members regarding the expansion of Panhandle Pride, Inc.  She wants to see exponential growth, building Pride beyond the annual event and bringing the community together more than once a year.  Kim is also seeking the opportunity to get involved with other LGBTQ+ organizations across the Nation and is excited to be able to network with other groups in order to bring much-needed support to the community.
