OUR TEAM

KIRSTIE GRAY

OWNER

Kirstie Gray is a life-long Alaskan. When she was young, her father and mother began one of the first Internet Service Provider companies in Anchorage, and successfully ran it for many years. Kirstie grew up in business, learning how to manage people, tasks, computers, employees, and finances.

As she was growing up, Kirstie learned a lot from her parents about self-reliance, community, cooperation, business, a good work ethic and the importance of a work-life balance. They worked long hours, with their children by their sides, building their businesses.  Kirstie has now founded her perfect business which utilizes all her strengths. As the owner of her own bookkeeping company, Kirstie assists many small businesses with their books, payroll, project assistance and business development.  

Gray Services, LLC has clients that come from a range of backgrounds, from building construction to gravel to multi-million-dollar projects all over the state, to support service companies and Sole Proprietor businesses. Kirstie has good knowledge in many fields, which serves her well with the variety of businesses she serves. She has excellent skill in gaining, training, and retaining good employees who help her serve the clients.

Kirstie’s success is growing in Anchorage and state-wide, and her dream of owning her own business before she was 30 came true. A dream that was built on skill, determination, and awareness of what Alaskan businesses need, and the knowledge of how to fill those needs. Kirstie’s commitment to her community has achieved personal and professional growth, an understanding of what her clients need and how to provide it, and how to make quality changes in her world to make it a better place for each of us.

Supporting her community, she participates in local organizations such as Petroleum Club of Anchorage technology committee and Associated General Contractors of Alaska (AGC) board member. To support her work life balance Kirstie participates in her children’s school’s PTSA programs, spending time with her kids, is an avid golfer and enjoys fishing as often as she can get to the water.
