TOPEKA — Michelle McCormick, LMSW, will join the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence, Topeka as its new executive director. Her first day with KCSDV is February 20th.
“We are delighted to welcome Michelle as the next leader of KCSDV,” said Carol Ruth Bonebrake, chair of the KCSDV board. “Michelle’s experience demonstrates her dedication to serving victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence, which is the core of KCSDV’s work.”
The Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence is Kansas’ leading statewide voice for victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence. KCSDV works to prevent and eliminate sexual and domestic violence through a statewide network of programs that provide support and safety to all victims of sexual and domestic violence and stalking, with primary attention to women and their children. KCSDV was founded in 1982. The non-profit organization is located in Topeka, Kansas.
McCormick has a background in victim advocacy and intervention with deep experience working with and serving survivors of domestic and sexual violence. She joins the KCSDV from the Kansas Attorney General’s Office, where she was director of the victim services division and victim rights coordinator. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Emporia State University and a master’s degree in social work from the University of Kansas.
McCormick takes the reins from longtime executive director Joyce Grover who led KCSDV for 11 years. Grover announced his retirement on February 3 in November 2022.
“The Board believes Michelle brings a strong vision for growth for KCSDV’s mission and future programs. We look forward to working with her,” said Bonebrake.
