Meet Kasey

Founder of KC Smart Girls and former educator for 7 years.


It all started when…

Hello and welcome! My name is Kasey and I am the founder of KC Smart Girls. I came up with this idea one morning while walking my dog and haven’t been able to get if off my brain ever since!

For seven years I taught middle school and also coached high school softball. I really enjoyed my time as a teacher and coach, but knew that I needed to be doing something different.

My journey, after leaving public education, led me along a very interesting path where I learned a lot about myself and met some really inspirational women in Kansas City.

One thing that really stuck out to me was the process of overcoming my mindset. I realized I had been telling myself things like: I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, and so on. After meeting new women I quickly realized I’m not the only one who struggles with my mindset and that realization felt so amazing—I’m not alone!

I’m on a mission to create a community of positive self-loving young women here in Kansas City. I needed this support when I was in middle and high school and I want to provide healthy mindset strategies to the young women in Kansas City. My goals are for our girls to grow up with confidence, inspiration, and feel comfortable in their own skin.

I plan to create opportunities and a space to showcase the amazing things young women are doing in Kansas City, while also providing a variety of resources.
