Andrea Babbit started working at Happy Bottoms in April 2019. She brings 20 years of nonprofit experience to Happy Bottoms with expertise in building partnerships and mobilizing neighborhoods, community coalitions and thousands of volunteers to create safer, cleaner, healthier and more sustainable communities.
Andrea earned a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Social Welfare from KU and a Masters of Public Administration/Nonprofit Management from UMKC. After learning about diaper need, Andrea coordinated a national diaper drive through Mothers & More and started volunteering at Happy Bottoms. She is excited to be working alongside talented and committed staff, community partners and volunteers to alleviate diaper need in Kansas City.
Andrea loves travel, art museums, learning to play piano, trying out new teas, and watching the birds in her backyard. Mostly she hangs out with her family, and her two kids sometimes let her win at card and board games.
