I've been on the staff of the Indianola Y since it opened in 2013, most recently serving as member engagement director and interim director. As executive director, I'll oversee all aspects of the operation of the Indianola Y, including member experience, programming, staffing, facilities management and budgeting.
I have lived in Indianola since moving here during my senior year of high school in 1988. My husband, Bill, and I have three children – Darby, Jeff and Cole.
I am very active in the community and am currently the President of the Warren County Philanthropic Partnership Board and also serve on the Indianola Chamber Board and the Simpson Guild Executive Committee. I also enjoy coaching Girls on the Run and Simpson College Cheerleading.
I choose to work for the Y because the mission and goals align with my own, so taking on this new role means much more to me than simply being a manager of the facility. As someone who lives in and values Indianola, I see this as an opportunity to further strengthen the community we serve. I’m already enjoying the collaborative teamwork and meaningful relationships at the Indianola YMCA and am excited for what the future holds.
The team of staff and board members here are incredibly dedicated to supporting the community and making a positive impact; I look forward to working with them. I greatly appreciate the relationships with our members and want to continue to find ways that we can make their lives even better through the work we are doing at the Y.
