Kiki Lathrop – Branch Director

"I worked at the Club in Buena Vista for several years before becoming branch director in Salida, My predecessor,  Tessie Ortega, did a fantastic job, and I am excited about being at the Salida Club now! Working at the BGC appeals to me because I like working for nonprofits and wanted to be in the education field. 

At the Club I get to teach kids in an informal environment. More than that, the Boys & Girls Clubs help build society by providing opportunities that would not otherwise be presented. I grew up on a sailboat from ages 6 – 17 (mostly around the Bahamas and Florida – it was great!), have lived in the U.K., Japan and Australia, and hold a master's degree in museum studies."

McKenzie Musser – AmeriCorps Staff

Mckenzie is the social media director VISTA for the Club. She holds a master's degree in philanthropy and nonprofit development from the University of Northern Iowa and is a Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) through the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance. 

Before moving to Chaffee County, she was the events and donor support coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Johnson County, Iowa, where she found a passion for making futures great. When not at the Club, you can often find Mckenzie enjoying the mountains.
