As the daughter of a teen mother and raised in the conservative rural south, Joni Wickham was the first in her family to receive an education and overcome the barriers of socioeconomic hardship and others’ low expectations of her. A native of North Carolina, Joni came to Kansas City after leading initiatives within state and federal government as well as advocacy organizations. She began working on former Kansas City Mayor Sly James’ staff and soon became the office’s Chief of Staff. She has proven herself to be an accomplished political strategist and negotiator, communications expert and organizational leader.
