The Alaska Oil and Gas Association has hired Rachel Bylsma as the organization’s external affairs manager.

Bylsma recently served as the director of constituent services for U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan, a role she maintained since the senator was first elected more than six years ago. Prior to that, she was a senior policy advisor to Gov. Sean Parnell.

Born and raised in Alaska, she is a graduate of Dimond High School. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from George Fox University and earned her Master of Arts degree in public policy from Liberty University while working full-time for Sen. Sullivan.

“It was great to have Rachel on my team and to see her passionate advocacy on behalf of Alaskans. I know she will bring the same tenacity and dedication she exhibited in my office to the Alaska Oil and Gas Association, and I wish her the best,” Sullivan said in a statement.

“We are extremely excited to work with Rachel,” said Kara Moriarty, AOGA President/CEO. “She is a consummate professional and has a strong work ethic. We look forward to putting her skills to work advocating for the long-term viability of the oil and gas industry in Alaska.”

Bylsma will be responsible for the organization’s public relations, government affairs, and event management.

AOGA is a professional trade association whose mission is to foster the long-term viability of the oil and gas industry in Alaska for the benefit of all Alaskans.
