Traci will join the organization Feb. 1, 2023. Retiring executive director Wendy Glick will assure a smooth transition by supporting her during a 60-day transition period.
More than 20 years of non-profit leadership experience
Traci brings more than 20 years of experience in non-profit leadership to her new role at Catholic Charities Wichita. She will soon complete 13 years of service at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, where she has been director of stewardship and pastoral planning since February 2013. In that role, she has been responsible for strategic planning, fund development, communications and marketing, and is the parish’s primary administrative officer. She previously served three years as director of extraordinary and legacy stewardship at St. Thomas.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with the board of directors and the Catholic Charities staff in serving those in our community who are in the most need of compassion and love,” Traci says. “While the agency is on a solid foundation with 13 thriving ministries, I believe there is potential to make an even greater difference in the 25 counties it serves. I look forward to working with the team in making that happen in the years to come.”
Traci’s earlier non-profit experience includes serving as executive director of The American Cancer Society (1994-1996) and director of development for Ronald McDonald House Charities, Wichita (2004-2006). She also gained experience in the private sector. She worked as a recruiter for Koch Industries (1996-1999) and was self-employed as a contract recruiter in the telecommunications and technology industry from 2007-2009.
