Jaclyn Mayes

Jaclyn Mayes

Jaclyn Mayes is a led connector called to serve in areas of motivating, encouraging and inspiring others in their calling. Her areas of expertise are networking, story-telling and uplifting others. You may even include the gift of gab on the previous list.

Why AHA? Why Go Red? It all started with a billboard.

A few years ago Ms. Mayes was driving south on I-35 and noticed a billboard for Go Red For Women. At that time she did not know the impact this organization would have on her or the education she would share as a heart health advocate. So often, you hear how men identify heart attacks. Where were the women? A few weeks passed and she contacted the local office requesting additional information and how she could contribute. Not a heart survivor herself but, with familial risks she knew she had to understand more about this initiative.

Today, Go Red For Women has become more than just an organization for Jaclyn. It has become a way of life to advocacy, health and education to all women. The bond of sisterhood with the courageous women (SURVIVORS) she serves with makes this fight more than just an initiative but the fight for all Kansas Citians and nation alike. A woman’s heart is so much more than an organ, it is the fiber of our community and the strength of our families. Take notice, Go Red For Women #HeartSistersAreWhy.
Jaclyn sets high expectations and has a reputation of bringing out the best in people. Her personal mission statement: Inspire positive relationships.
