The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri: women building better communities.
When you arrive at League Headquarters, is there a particular drink you always bring with you?
I gave up soda years ago, but not my need for caffeine. I am addicted to Starbucks and love that there are two between my house and HQ. I can always go for a skinny vanilla latte, day or night.
Do you have a favorite Holiday Mart memory?
After several years of shopping the Mart as the mom of two boys and drooling over every tutu and hair bow, I had my first daughter in July of 2011. Not only was that October a very fun year to shop for all things frilly, I also made Ladies Night Out my first night away from her as I joined some JLKCMO friends and my sister in a hotel room block. I definitely didn’t get much of the sleep I intended to catch up on, but we had a blast!
What’s one of the new Signature programs that’s got you the most excited for 2015-2016?
Oh, come on, that’s like asking me which of my kids is my favorite! I honestly think they are all so exciting, but I’m particularly glad to see us entering the area of Abuse & Neglect. I think we are up to the challenge of facing a heavy issue head-on and making an important, rewarding difference.
