Meet the Leaders

Chicktime Canyon Lake Managing Leader


Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
When Lori announced at the August 2013 event that she would like a 4th leader for our Canyon Lake chapter I thought about it for a week, then I volunteered.  I found Chicktime on the internet.  I was looking for volunteer work that my daughter, Katy and I could do together.  Since we found Chicktime, I have been consistently volunteering since February of 2013 and  I look forward to it every month.  I can’t wait to see the girls at New Life and I feel that they like to see us every month as well.  I believe it is important to be there every month because in my mind, it demonstrates consistency for the girls that live there and I think it could give them a sense of reassurance to see the same people come back month after month.  It is an indescribable feeling when one of the girls remembers me and gives me a hug.  I guess the reason I decided to serve a leadership role with Chicktime is selfish.  It makes me feel good!


My passions and gifts:
If you ask my friends at work or my daughter and her friends they would say my passion is Chicktime.  I talk about it whenever I get the chance.  I try to encourage others to join us and participate at New Life.   I have a knack for organizing things which helps when getting ready for my month to lead the station.   I also really enjoy helping people.


Hobbies and Interests:
My main interest is of course is my family.  I love to spend time with my husband and my daughter.  We enjoy shopping, cooking, and watching movies or TV together.  I also enjoy scrap booking and card making.  I am trying to get back into sewing, which is something I loved to do but finding the time lately is difficult.  I also enjoy participating in Toastmasters.  As a member of the North San Antonio club, I am learning a great deal about public speaking and leadership.  I also enjoy my job as a manager, which is very challenging and interesting.

Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
First of all, let me say that I serve on the leadership team of the Canyon Lake chapter for very different reasons than I serve Chicktime, Inc (our parent organization). For the Canyon Lake chapter, I serve because I love the camaraderie of the productive chaos of Chicktime mornings at New Life ( a home for 80 girls in residential treatment).  Of course the children are incredible and I feel blessed beyond measure when I spend time with them, but I don’t need Chicktime for that… there are children in need of love and care every moment of every day. I love problem solving and we always seem to have a frantic crisis while navigating our mornings utilizing rooms throughout the massive campus… Someone gets locked out, no soap in the kitchen, not enough of the chocolate snacks. I know these things sound silly but it makes me happy to be needed. I’ve been there so long… I know where to find the man with the keys, where they keep the stash of soap, and have the guts to multiply the chocolate by cutting them all in half! I feel like my presence lets the leaders focus on their programs, I feel like I bring peace to the process. I enjoy being the gopher. The reason I ‘do’ Chicktime every single day in my role as founder and president of Chicktime, Inc… I feel called by my God. He has shown me that every woman on this planet has an incredible gifting meant to serve her local and/or global community. I am dedicated to loving each and everyone by using what He has given me to help ‘her’ go where He is calling her to go.


My passions and gifts:
I like to organize processes. I like to create processes. I serve our chapter and Chicktime, Inc. by coming up with ways to accomplish what we set out to do. I’m also a visionary, I see clearly where Chicktime is going and I hope that I help our members and leaders see that too… so that they understand their part  is a piece of a bigger story… The story of hope and restoration for the children (and the widows, the abused, and the broken people) we serve… and each other.


Hobbies and Interests:
I am married to the most magnificent (and sometimes trying) man on planet earth! Mike and I have been married for 22 years and have three children, two in college and one still at home. I love to read and write, tend my gardens, keep my home, hill country drives, listen to music and rock on my porch! My happiest days are spent doing absolutely nothing while hanging out with my family and friends. I am very interested in people and helping them discover what they were meant to do with their lives. I’m selfish really, I want the next generation to have a better world and that can’t happen if the current generation isn’t fulfilling their potential. I really want  people to find true happiness and that can’t happen if they are living frustrated unfulfilled lives. I just truly enjoy helping people.

Chicktime Canyon Lake Chapter Co-Leader


Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
Inspired by my father’s heart for serving others as a missionary in Venezuela, I’ve discovered a passion in myself to want to serve others with the gifts that God has given me. Chicktime gives me the opportunity to encourage other women to recognize the beauty and gifts inside each of them. It also allows me to participate in the lives of both the women in my community and the girls at New Life, not just by sharing my time, my love, and my passions with them, but to give them the freedom to discover their own passions… the gifts that God himself placed inside each of us.


My passions and gifts:
My passion is art and graphic design…or anything that involves creating something of visual interest. I also enjoy watching others create. I believe art can be an open window to a person’s soul.  When I create something it comes from within me… not just from my mind but also from my heart. Art in any form is like a glimpse into the soul, a way to visually share our self with others when we can’t find the words.


Hobbies and Interests:
I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my niece and nephews and time to invest in others and causes that are dear to my heart. I enjoy creating art (all forms), making crafts, decorating, gardening, traveling, entertaining, and just being outdoors in nature.

Chicktime Canyon Lake Chapter Co-Leader


Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
When asked by Lori and Carolyn (Carolyn who by the way is my sister), if I wanted to take on a leadership role with Chicktime, I thought about it for maybe a day and said sure! I felt I was flexible, adaptable, willing to learn and willing to lead in an environment that lifts females of all ages up to a place of equality. I am able to be strong for the weak when needed and serve as proof for the girls at the New Life Center that anything is possible. The world is a cruel and cold place for some, but I pray in my heart that those of us serving with Chicktime can give others a softer place to land with the understanding that there is a lot of good in the world too. After all, the children of today are our leaders of tomorrow and they need good role models.


My passions and gifts: 
My passions include working with children, ( I was the Children’s minister at my church for a few years before leaving to take care of my mother with terminal cancer), singing in the choir (which I LOVE to do) and folding laundry (which brings much peace to my day). I get great satisfaction in sitting and listening to a senior citizen talk about their childhood and stories of yesteryear. There is so much we can learn from the past and so much that needs to be shared if we just take the time to listen. Of course, for as much as I like to listen, I like to talk and share myself with others.


Hobbies and Interests:
My main focus is my family. I have a wonderful husband, John, of 31 years, and three awesome children, all of who have graduated college and are either in the working world or law school now. I have two sisters who I love dearly and would do anything for. My favorite thing to do is spend hours in my hobby room creating cards and crafting. I love taking girls trips with my sisters and daughter and I love, love to exercise. Inside or outside, I literally can walk for miles and do so most mornings.


Corrina Green
Chicktime Canyon Lake Chapter Co-Leader/Rising Managing Leader


Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:

I was first introduced to Chicktime Canyon Lake when my daughter was 6 or 7 years old.  Now that she is in her teens and able to serve along side of me, it gives me great joy to see her passion about loving the girls of New Life.   I love the heart of the women who have served Chicktime Canyon Lake, and am honored to join them in a more substantial effort to show God’s love to those who need to feel His love.  I desire nothing more than to be His hands and feet, and His heart to the young ladies of New Life.

My passions and gifts: 

I am passionate about serving my Savior and showing His love to others.  I love to cook and bake, and often find myself leading and assisting in the “snack” station.  God has blessed me with the gift of being able to organize teams and lead.  I am honored to use this gift to help lead on the Chicktime Canyon Lake team.

Hobbies and Interests:

I love to read, run and paint.  I love the mountains and the beach.  And I love serving with kids and students ministries.
