Kaitlyn will serve on the Kansas City Brownfields Commission. She decided to apply for the Appointments Project after her fellowship with the Urban Leaders last summer. Her co-fellow, Pranav, worked for the Women’s Foundation and told her that she should apply since she had been in search of obtaining a role as a public servant. Later that same day, she applied.
By serving on a civic board, she hopes to gain more insight on what it all takes to serve the community. She also believes that this is the first of many stepping stones to one day running for office.
The board that she will be serving on focuses its time on conserving underused properties that may be hard to renovate due to real or conceived environmental contaminants.
