About Our Chapter

Welcome to Chicktime Tulsa! My name is Kathy and I am the Managing Leader of our chapter. In 2013 I was faced with having open heart surgery, I reelevated life. I realized I was just exiting not living life. I made a bucket list and spent five years checking so many things off…  trips to Europe, swimming with dolphins, ect. However, my soul was longing for more. I asked the Universe how may I serve. A day later I saw a post on Facebook for new managing leader for the Tulsa chapter. After reading about Chicktime on their website, I knew I had to be apart of this amazing organization. When I was on the wrong path in life, people stepped in to encourage me on the right path. I call them life savers! Come join me and see how many teens we can help encourage to walk a better path by just showing up. Mother Tereasa said the biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
We would love for you to join us on our journey to add love and joy to the lives of these children. Our volunteers are what keeps our chapter going and that is why we need you too!

Chicktime Tulsa Managing Leader


Our History:

In 2018, Lana Harell became the Managing Leader of Chicktime Tulsa. Lana’s journey to leadership was a little different but we believe it happened that way for a reason! Lana loves to give and have always wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. Being involved with Chicktime allowed her the opportunity to participate in a group that is all about helping women and children feel some extra love and attention. Lana, herself, was once involved in a domestic abuse situation and she survived! It wasn’t easy, and she was also a single mother. She had a lot of support from friends which is why she was so willing to pour into others!

Chicktime Tulsa was founded by Shay Varner is 2017 on the idea that children deserve to enjoy life and have a fun childhood. Shay believed that her purpose was to help bring new smiles, new ideas, new found love through Christ Jesus, and to bring new hope that children have never discovered or may have lost due to past/current trauma. She founded Chicktime Tulsa with a vision to simply be a mentor for others. She enjoyed creating different events and empowering others. We are thankful for the time that Shay invested in building Chicktime Tulsa!
