Associate Director, Life Works
Bio: Kirk Hinkleman is the Associate Director of Life Works. Having worked in the human services field since 1998, Kirk has a wide range of experience working with people with unique and challenging support needs. Upon graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2001, with a degree in Sociology, Kirk shifted his career focus to working with adults looking to live fully inclusive, independent lives in the community. Kirk met his now business partner and co-creator of awesome, Beth Gallagher, in 2007. The pairing has proven to be dynamic every step of the way. Kirk is committed to dismantling archaic structures, systems and thinking as it pertains to people who experience disabilities finding valued social roles in neighborhoods. Kirk is convinced that we need to view people through a citizen-centered lens if we what we are looking for is real, lasting and sustainable relationships with people.
Co-author (along with Beth Gallagher) of “Intentional Teaming: Shifting Organizational Culture”, and Co-Creator of Liberty Plan, Kirk is committed to realizing the highest potential in people while asking Beth Mount’s question “What More Is Possible?” When asked about his mission, Kirk says: “We need to shatter the walls our culture and society create that preclude us from making simple human connections with each other in the community and in our neighborhoods. I’m particularly fascinated with the idea of kinship and love. It is my hope, with our foundation of looking at all people as viable, contributive citizens living in community, we are able to embrace to the idea that we all inherently belong to one another. Love should drive the path we walk...we are all human, and thusly, all deserve love, dignity and respect.”
