What is your full name?

Kalee Rae Hinkle

What is your job title at the WCA?

Head Cashier in the Thrift Shop

What do you do in your job at the WCA?

I do a lot of things. Mainly, I help keep the thrift shop running smoothly, so we can keep making money to support our programs. I get to help clients get clothes or whatever they need to get back on their feet.

How long have you been with the WCA?

I have worked for the WCA for 3 years and 9 months, but I volunteered for a year before becoming an employee.

Where did you work prior to joining the WCA team?

This is actually my first official job

What do you find most rewarding about your work at the WCA?

The most rewarding thing is just knowing that I am helping people, that I am making a difference and helping people have better lives. I’m part of something bigger, part of movement to make the world better and it is an incredible feeling

How have you changed or grown as a person through your work here?

I’ve changed a lot and grown a lot since I starting working with the WCA. I have a different outlook on life now. The WCA has really helped shaped me. I’ve seen the worst in people and I’ve seen the best in people- all in the same five minutes- and it wakes you up. It’s given me every reason in the world to be thankful for the life I have and it renews my hope in a very realistic way.

Is there a memorable moment or story that you’d like to share that you have experienced at the WCA?

I have so many stories and memories here. I can’t even begin to choose which one to share. But I will say that all of them have a special place in my heart. The WCA is just such an amazing place and I love it.
