Kristy Shaffer joined SCAN’s Board of Directors in 2014 and during her time with SCAN has brought energy and enthusiasm. Kristy is the Director of Procurement for CarMax, and has worked there for 19 years, and continues to love the company culture. Kristy was involved with CarMax’s Richmond Giving Community for about 5 years, and through CarMax was introduced to SCAN through their program to connect employees with a non-profit organization that aligns with their goals and interests.
“In my last year with SCAN, I have most enjoyed the interactions with the staff,” Kristy said. “Through the busiest times at SCAN, everyone continues to be unrelenting with their work towards the mission.”
Kristy was attracted to SCAN’s mission specifically through the work of the Child Advocacy Center (CAC) and the Circle Preschool Program. “The CAC looks through a unique lens to use a collaborative approach to focus on what is best for the child,” Kristy said. “Having a 4 year old child of my own, I know the needs of a child during preschool, and how important a strong family and healthy relationships are.”
Kristy hopes to engage her community and bring awareness to those who may not know how to get involved. “I want to show that it is do-able. As a working parent you can get involved and give back,” Kristy said. “A big group can do more for the community than an individual.”
