IHS Welcomes New Director of Development and Communications

Aug 15, 2017

HUTCHINSON – Interfaith Housing Services is pleased to welcome Rebekah Starkey Keasling as their new Director of Development. In her roll, Keasling will work closely with the Board of Directors and fellow staff members as she directs all resource development activities and implements an effective communications strategy to cultivate community support.

“I am thrilled to join this organization that is making a tangible difference here in Hutchinson and communities across Kansas,” Keasling said. “You can drive down the street and see just a few of the lives that have been touched and the neighborhoods being transformed by the work they do.”

Keasling comes to Interfaith with more than 15 years of experience in marketing and communications, most recently as the Marketing Manager for Lowen Color Graphics, and prior to that as Art Director for Catalyst Creative Services and Creative Services Manager for The Hutchinson News.

A member of Leadership Reno County class of 2013, Keasling has since served on various local boards, including The Children’s Emergency Shelter Home, Stage 9 and currently on the Visual Communications Advisory Board for Hutchinson Community College. In 2016 her design was selected to replace the official seal of the city of Hutchinson after more than 80 years.

“Having the opportunity to bring my desire to improve the lives of those in our community to my work is honestly a dream come true.”
