I am very excited to join the talented Kenai Branch team and the Kenai community. I grew up in a similar small-town lifestyle in Palmer and I truly enjoy the neighborly environment and tight-knit ties that exist in smaller communities. I look forward to immersing myself in the Kenai community and doing all that I can to make Kenai an excellent place to live and do business, said Shiflea.
