I have been with Children’s Mercy for almost 11 years and currently serve in the role as Volunteer and Guest Services Outreach Manager.
In 2008, while in Wichita, my daughter became ill, and her pediatrician called to say they found a mass on the base of her skull. During a late-night search for a neurosurgeon, I stumbled upon the Children’s Mercy website and found her care team. While she was being treated at Children's Mercy, I fell in love with the people here. Her survivorship is a miracle and the great care she received, and attention given to our whole family, moved me.
I feel blessed to be a part of this community. Philanthropy seems like such a small word, but the jam-packed action behind that word is so moving. I get to work with some of the most amazing team members in my department and throughout the organization. LOVE WILL move mountains – and I get a front row seat to see that love in action every day.
