United Way of the Ozarks is pleased to announce Kandice Riley as its new community engagement and events coordinator.

The community engagement and events coordinator is a vital member of UWO’s team. In this role, Riley will oversee event details, organize community engagement opportunities, and help manage United Way’s affinity groups and volunteer programs.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kandice to our team. She has such a positive energy,” says Amber Alcorn, director of communication and volunteerism. “She is resourceful, focused, and a true team player.”

Riley’s prior experience in event planning and non-profit work make her perfect for this role. She formerly served as the venue manager for Sycamore Creek Family Ranch, and accounts specialist for Adult & Teen Challenge USA.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in public relations from Missouri State University.

As community engagement and events coordinator, Riley will raise awareness around United Way’s mission, and provide on-ramps for community involvement.
