Racquel Thiesen | Community Leadership Programs Chair
Racquel Thiesen has been an advocate for the cultivation of social capital in Kansas communities for 25 years. She offers passion, experience and deep understanding of what makes civic engagement so important. This can be seen in her work as a Community Leadership Consultant for the KLC. Racquel has been an elected official and remains connected to local and state politics, an environment where exercising leadership is most certainly connected to the KLC’s Leadership Principles.
Balancing the realities of being a wife, a mother of five daughters, a business owner and community activist demands organization, critical thinking, and intentional effort to take care of herself when being pulled in many directions. Ask Racquel about her core values and she’ll tell you that putting her faith at the top of the priority list is what makes all the difference in the work she does.
