Treasurer

Kristy Whittaker

Kristy has one daughter, Kaitlyn, who is 13 years old and going into the eighth grade at Brecksville-Broadview Heights Middle School. Kaitlyn is currently on Authority for the second season. Kristy harmlessly enrolled Kaitlyn in an afterschool tumbling program that was advertised at the elementary school the first year living in the district.  Kaitlyn took classes off and on until one day she landed her back handspring. It was at that point Kaitlyn asked her mom if she could join all-star cheer. After one year of the half year program during World Elite’s inaugural year, Kristy and Kaitlyn were ready to jump in with both feet. Last year was their first year in the full year in the program and both Kristy and Kaitlyn have made many friends and memories with their WE family.

Kristy has been in the financial world for her entire professional career. She has been at KeyBank for the past 7 years where she currently holds the position of Business Banking Sales Leader. Kristy loves helping business owners realize their dreams and it was through her passion for finance and business that brought her to the position of Treasurer for WEBC.

Both Kristy and Kaitlyn enjoy traveling to anywhere with a beach, mostly Naples, Florida and Redondo Beach, California. Kristy loves enjoying a drink and laughing with friends, especially on a patio near water, going to Cedar Point, and singing loudly in the car with Kaitlyn.  Besides Kaitlyn, Kristy also has a chubby black cat named Spooky.
