Lisa Schuelka — Executive Director
I grew up in northwest Iowa and graduated from a class of just 19 students. I loved growing up in a small community! My husband and I have lived in the Ames area for the past 20+ years where we have raised three children. I met Lisa when her son Luke, and my daughter, Olivia, were just babies. We have been friends ever since. Now, these two babies are entering adulthood! I began serving with All Aboard for Kids in an official capacity in January of 2020. It has been a joy to work along side the McCarty’s and the rest of the AAFK team to bring this program to life.
Kari McClure — Program Director
I grew up in Iowa and then made Colorado home for 15 years, I miss those mountains, but my roots are here in Iowa! My experience ranges from having my esthetician license to being a catering manager. Regardless of the field of work I’m in, my heart is passionate about helping others. I have worked with children from coordinating a dance program for at risk girls to being a childcare supervisor at church. I enjoy engaging with children and families to connect them to the resources that will support them and allow their gifts and talents to shine!
Molly Logsdon — Administrative Intern
I am currently a Senior in the HDFS program at Iowa State University. I first heard about All Aboard for Kids through the career fair at ISU, where I met Lisa S. and fell in love with the mission and values of the company. I have been working this spring to manage our social media, website, program advertising, and more, and I have loved my experience with AAFK so far! It has been a joy to work with such a supportive and kind team.
