"Kaylor's business acumen and leadership training couple with her dynamic personality and passion for our mission make her a perfect fit for CEO," notes Board Chair Melissa Skinner-Liberman.

Our charity has a strong base of support from our staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, and community partners, and I expect this transition to occur smoothly without any interruption to our mission."

"The impact of the charity is profound and lasts a lifetime. Leading RMHCCI is an honor, and I am excited to be a part of the team as we continue to serve children and families when they need us the most," says Kaylor. RMHCCI's core programs are anchored by their two Ronald McDonald Houses® located in Springfield (since 1986) and Peoria (opened December 2019).
