Julie Cook | Vice President of Member and Program Services | @YMCAJulieC

“My motivation has been to make a positive impact on peoples’ lives through sports, health, fitness and recreation programs and services. Every day I work side by side with individuals and organizations that ensure everyone – regardless of age, income or background – has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. It is inspiring for me to be a part of an organization that is so intentional in being community centered, bringing people together and nurturing the potential of all.”

Shannon Lang | School Age Director | @YMCAShannon

I love being a part of the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties. It’s so much more than “Just a Y.” I see people from all walks of life connecting and building relationships that otherwise may never have happened. They smile and talk to each other, not through a text but through face to face conversations. They find common ground to become a community. I’m honored to be part of a team that’s helping to create the futures by building quality programs for kids and families through safe, enriching after school experiences. The Y isn’t just a job – it’s my way of life.

Britt Selbo | Aquatics Director | @YMCABritt

“I thoroughly enjoy working with kids and teaching them how to swim. Swimming and the YMCA took such a major role in my life from an early age and I enjoy teaching little kids how to enjoy the water while also being safe.”

Anna Hagen | Marketing Director | @YMCAAnna

“For me, working at the YMCA means making a difference in people’s lives everyday. Being on the marketing team, I don’t work directly with members everyday, but I get to tell their stories. I get to share about all of the incredibly impactful things that our going in our Y, like people reaching their wellness goals, making new friends and rekindling their spirits.”

Casey Sanders | Membership and Retention Director | @YMCACasey

“Building relationships with members that last through gained confidence, skills and concurring goals! I feel I am at my best when the team I work with is connected together, with our community and our members.”

Cortney Whaley | Assistant ELC Director | @YMCACortney

“I don’t just work at the Y, I live the Y. Every day the work I do changes lives, including my own. Hearing children giggling in the next room, I can’t help but smile and be excited for their future. Our littlest learners are curious, resourceful and observant. They teach me something new every day, and sharing that with my Y family is something I couldn’t ever live without!”
