Chamber Board of Directors

Say Hello to our Newest Directors!

Amy is an active board member with KACC, and her term has now been renewed.

"I am the Principal at the Virtual School for USD 331. I also facilitate Career Tech Ed Programs and Title Programs. I'm excited to get the opportunity to serve on the Chamber Board for another term. The Board is an incredible team of amazing people and I feel lucky to work alongside them. Our Director, Shelby, is such a positive force and has done wonderful work this past year.
I was born and raised in Kingman, and 3 years ago my family and I moved back here to our hometown. I'm anxious to continue planning and executing fun events in our community and supporting local businesses."

Amy Wallace, term renewed

Meredith Voran, new director

This is Meredith's first time serving on KACC's board of directors. Please give her a warm welcome!

"I am a pharmacist at Kingman Drug. I enjoy spending time on my parents' farm, baking, and going on walks with my dog, Jax. I am eager to become more involved in our local community. I'm looking forward to gleaning wisdom from board members with more experience while introducing and integrating new ideas to better help promote our local businesses."

This is also Zach's first time serving on KACC's board of directors! Please be sure to give him a warm welcome!

"My name is Zachary Bieghler and I am from Hutchinson, KS. I graduated from Hutchinson High School in 2001. From there, I attended Hutchinson Community College where I gained my associate degree in Applied Science and became certified as a paramedic. It was during this time that I also started teaching EMS education for Hutchinson Community College, where I started soon after gaining my initial EMT certification in 2002.

I continued to work for HCC for the next 10 years as a part-time EMS instructor and taught several EMT classes at off-site locations such as Galva, Lindsborg, Halstead, Sedgwick, and more. As far as my street EMS career, I started as a volunteer with the Sedgwick County EMS Reserves and was also hired as a PRN EMT for Reno County EMS in 2004. In 2005 after gaining paramedic certification, I was hired with McPherson EMS as a full-time paramedic. I left McPherson in 2008 and started working for Rice County EMS. I found that I loved the more rural environment of EMS and it was this job where I quickly started learning EMS administrative responsibilities as I quickly became the department's training officer. I absolutely loved this job and the small-town atmosphere.

In 2012, Jeremy Horn, the interim EMS  Director for Kingman EMS reached out to me for assistance. He stated that he was working on new protocol revisions for Kingman EMS and that he had heard through some channels that I would be a good resource for him. As I interacted with Jeremy and provided him assistance, he hold me that I should apply for the Kingman EMS Director position. I had just started a bachelor's degree program for Healthcare Administration earlier in the year because becoming an EMS Director was my career goal. I applied for the position and was hired by the City of Kingman as the new EMS director and started this job in September 2012. I also continued my higher education and received a bachelor's and master's degree in Healthcare Administration from the University of Phoenix. 

Thought it was tough to leave a job that I loved and a community that I enjoyed, I found comfort knowing that Kingman EMS and the community would offer me the same small-town environment that I had grown to love. I have found that the community has embraced me, and I truly feel as though I belong here.

I am married to a wonderful man who is a sleep clinician who runs sleep studies in Liberal and Larned, Kansas. We have been together for 6 years and married for 4 years. We enjoy traveling and our pets. Our 1-year-old German Shepherd ("Sketch") keeps us entertained and on our toes. 

I look forward to serving with the Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce and becoming more involved in the community and community events. I like the idea of helping our small-town businesses and encouraging others to shop local. I also look forward to the networking opportunities that this can provide for not just me, but for Kingman EMS and the City of Kingman."
