Nancy Winchip - Executive Director

Executive Director

Nancy has worked for the Y throughout her career. Before joining the YMCA of Greater Kansas City in 2010, she was an executive director at the Valley of the Sun YMCA in Yuma, Arizona, and the YMCA of Metropolitan Tucson for 12 years. Prior to that, she worked in YMCAs in Iowa and Wisconsin.

The opportunity to make a positive difference in the community by providing programs and services open to all is what keeps her with the Y movement.

She loves to travel and had the opportunity to go to Chile in 1992 and 1993 to meet our Y partners in South America. She has also visited many YMCAs across the United States and Canada.

Erin
Evans

Healthy Living Director

Erin’s kids think all she does at work is talk to her friends. Although there is more to her job than that, it is a big part of it. And, she loves it.  

Her career with the Y began in 2009 at the YMCA in Charlotte, North Carolina. She has held various roles, including membership director, healthy living coach, fitness consultant and membership associate.

Erin is an ACE certified personal trainer and has certifications in Fitness Nutrition Specialty and Les Mills Body Pump and Pound. Helping members reach their goals and get excited about exercise is one of the things Erin likes most about her job. She also loves seeing people gain confidence simply from doing things they never knew they could.

She grew up in Wichita and graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in sports information. When not working, Erin loves lifting weights, eating and playing with her kids (followed by a nice glass of red wine!). She also enjoys drinking pretentious and overpriced delicious coffee.
