Chloe Kitts

What is your job at the Y? 
Front Desk/Member Services
How long have you worked at the Y?
Cumulatively about 3 and half years.
What is your Y story?
Initially, I started working for the Y at one of our Afterschool programs in Apex, NC. I fell in love with Y culture and our vision of building the community. After 2 and a half years working with elementary aged kids, I took break to pursue other career interests. Last summer I began looking for a new job and found another Y home here at Midtown. I've been at Midtown just shy of a year and still love it as much as I did when I started.
What do you like best about the Y?
I love our spirit of inclusiveness . The Y is for everyone and that's something I really believe in.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to be outside! Whether its the beach, the state park, or just my backyard, I'm happiest outdoors. I'm also a full time student studying communications and an avid traveler.

What is your job at the Y? 
Director of Soccer
How long have you been with the Y?
Officially my first day is August 1st.  Unofficially, as a camp counselor and Y parent for just over 2 years.   
What's your Y story?
My 9 year old son attended the sleep away camp at Kirkwood two years ago and was immediately welcomed into the YMCA family.  He was embraced by Lee, Jonathan, Luke and the amazing staff of Kirkwood and cannot wait to return every year.  I was fortunate enough to be included on the staff for Kirkwood and received the same treatment as my son.  I couldn’t believe how encouraging everyone I met was and it didn’t matter my background, I was treated like one of their own.
What would you like Y members to know about you? 
I married the most beautiful woman in the world and can speak better Spanglish then the average person.  I also love to camp out and enjoy nature with my son’s cub scout pack.  Finally, my favorite position is Goalkeeper.    
How do you like to spend your spare time? (Do you have spare time?)

Traveling to Southport to spend time with my Mom and Dad.
