RaeLynn Gochnauer

Living purpose-driven has always been in my DNA. Thanks to a friend over twenty years ago, I was introduced to the nonprofit world. From there, I was able to turn a passion into a career. As the inaugural Executive Director of the IAAP Foundation, I make it my daily mission to not only advocate for the administrative profession, but also strive to position the organization as a catalyst for change. My biggest energizer is the vast amount of potential that is out there for us to grow the visibility of profession and improve the lives of all admins.

When I’m not thinking all things admin, I enjoy time with family and friends, traveling to find salt and sand, reading, and cooking. As a Kansas City native, I also enjoy Sporting Kansas City games, local concerts, restaurants, First Fridays, and following the Northwest Missouri State Bearcats.
