About KC Shepherd's Center

We are a greater Kansas City nonprofit serving older adults, celebrating their contributions to the community and providing support and companionship to increase social activity, reduce food insecurity and build lasting relationships.


About Ceceila:

I call Kansas City, MO my adopted home. I was raised in New York City, and relocated to KCMO from Denver, CO in 2002 when I was appointed Executive Director of the Kansas City Public School Retirement System, and where I served until 2007.  I returned to Kansas City in 2013 after serving six years as Executive Director of Retirement for the City of Seattle (WA). I “retired” in 2022 to run for elected office in KCMO, following a career overseeing the administration, governance and investments for corporates, school districts, and municipalities’ pension plans.  Now as a community volunteer, my devotion to Kansas City and public service continues with service on the Boards of the Kansas City Public School Retirement Board (where I now serve as President), the Kansas City Employees Retirement Board (KCMO), the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, the Missouri Association of Public Employee Retirement Systems, and as 1st Vice President of the Missouri Women’s Political Caucus.

A graduate of Boston College, where I learned to respect the importance and reward of being in service to others; and the responsibility of advocating and protecting those who cannot for themselves, I am proud to be a part of the inaugural Prom With A Purpose in support of KC Shepherd Center.
