In the community, Kevin spent nine years on the board of Wellspring Family Services as Director and Board Development Committee Chair, where he was responsible for ensuring the board had the talent needed to drive the organization’s mission. In that capacity he also led key governance initiatives including CEO and board evaluation process improvements. He joined the Wellspring board while still at KCTS9 and was inspired by both organizations’ work in early childhood development. As a father of two young boys, he’s a self-proclaimed student of early childhood development and believes strongly in the strategic and long term impact of making informed, systemic investments in young children in our communities. His interest in early childhood development stems from a core belief and commitment to human and personal development.
