Kip’s choice? A day at the zoo.

His very young son is an animal lover, so their go-to spot is the Kansas City Zoo. Kip also enjoys golfing and coaching his son's T-ball team. A former rugby player, Kip has retired his cleats, but remains an avid fan of the game.

Community Leadership

A former U.S. Army Captain, Kip supports recovering service members, their families and caregivers.
