Meet Debra Goldstein, Director of Individual Giving

Debra Goldstein joined Kansas City Ballet’s Development team last November as the Director of Individual Giving, after having worked multiple positions in marketing at both for-profit and non-profit organizations. Debra grew up in Kansas City, where she attended Avila University and subsequently worked in positions for Hallmark and Sprint. She has two children as well as two grandchildren, and is a baseball fanatic. Her position with Kansas City Ballet is her first time working in the arts, and she’s thoroughly enjoying the experience. Debra says her favorite part of her new role is showcasing what Kansas City Ballet does, and leading people to have a new appreciation for the art of ballet.

“Walking into this job every day is like walking into beauty. Between the music, the dancing, and the people, it’s absolutely wonderful.”
