I’m most proud to have helped create a solid Board of Directors and volunteer group.
What is one thing you’ve learned in your time on the board?
You have to dig in and be involved!
What drives you to do this work?
It is so apparent there is a need for what we do. The most pressing challenge we face is what is displayed by some of our national leaders.
What do you like to do for fun?
Who do you look up to or feel inspired by within the YWCA?
I admire YWCA Northeast Kansas CEO Kathleen Marker. Her commitment cannot be measured. She is dedicated and leads by example.
