Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:

At the beginning of the Pandemic, I was looking for a way to share of myself and bring hope and love to others in a time that was challenging for everyone.  I found Chicktime on our company’s volunteer website and was immediately encouraged with the mission of ““encouraging women to develop their passions and use their gifts to make the world a better place for the next generation”.  The Kansas City Chapter was not able to meet with the girls onsite at this time, so for several months I provided craft supplies and games that the girls could enjoy and know that we cared about them.  When the opportunity came up to rebuild and lead the Kansas City Chapter, I prayed on it and God led me to step in.  As we are now beginning to spend time with the girls onsite, we are being blessed with spending quality time with them.

My passions and gifts:

In my day job, I am passionate about helping my team members develop their strengths and skills to grow their careers.  I am excited to be able to do the same for the young girls in our community that need support and help from those that truly care about them; to engage other talented women willing to share their gifts and skills with others and make a real difference.

My hobbies and interests:

My husband Don and I have been blessed with three adult children and a son-in-law and are now grandparents to Liam who has truly stolen our hearts.  My husband is a Wildlife Biologist and I am an Operations Group Manager for a bank that I have been with for 35 years.  My hobbies include crocheting, hiking, fishing, and studying the bible with a ladies group.  I love spending time with my family and traveling.

Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:

Growing up my mom had a daycare, so I have been around kids my whole life. I have always felt drawn to serve children in some capacity.  I love their authenticity and honesty. I believe much of the brokenness in our world is cyclical. We are all doing the best we can, with what we know. It is my hope to be a positive light when spending time with children and that it may disrupt any negative cycle, in a small way. I want to show them the love of Jesus and that no matter what they go through, they are so loved and worthy.

My passions and gifts:

 I am passionate about living a fulfilling life. I have learned over the years that life is short, and life is hard. I strive to surround myself with positive/uplifting friends and try to look for opportunities to serve others. God has given me the gift of empathy. I try to the best of my ability to use it to cultivate meaningful relationships.

My hobbies and interests:

I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my two yorkies. I go camping with my family on the weekends, quite often. Most of my friends have small children, so I enjoy spending time with them and spoiling them. I also have two nieces that I try to spend as much time with as possible. I enjoy running, going to church, and shopping.

Chicktime Kansas City Co-Leader

Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:

Having been a volunteer with Chicktime activities for the past few years I wanted to get more involved in the planning of the group. I really enjoy working with young people and helping them develop and grow into who they are becoming. Chicktime gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge, background, and passions for these young people to become their best selves and learn from my experiences.

My passions and gifts:

I am passionate about community: spending time with people, growing with people, and definitely enjoying meals with people! I love learning from others regardless of their age, experiences, and backgrounds. I am gifted in building relationships with people from all walks of life and histories, I firmly believe that there is something for me to learn from every person I encounter. Another gift is being a strong leader and teacher; I have used these gifts in my professional career in developing larger teams and as a college instructor, sharing my knowledge.

 

My hobbies and interests:

My “free time” is spent as an independent Fashion Designer. I participate in many regional fashion events including runway shows, pop-up shops, trunk shows, and more. I love sharing my love of fashion and apparel through designing, as a creative director for a regional magazine, and with the young people at Chicktime. My other interest is travel: I try to travel to anywhere I can, as often as I can. Travel time is generally spent getting away and reconnecting with my husband of 25 years, our 2 young men, and as many friends & family as we can convince to join us.
