Family and Child Advocate 

Tracy Kinderkencht

Hi, My name is Tracy Kinderknecht, I am a child/family advocate with the Western Kansas Child Advocacy Center.  I was hired on in January of 2016, and have loved my job ever since! 

I have been given an opportunity to work with an amazing team here with WKCAC and I have met more awesome kiddos than I ever thought I could. 

Along with these kids I get to meet and visit/play with, I enjoy spending time with our adult children, and our grandchildren. My husband and I are blessed with a wonderful big family!

I also enjoy reading/listening to audio books, quilting,  painting and spending time with our dog, Yogi.

Family and Child Advocate - Forensic Interviewer

Victoria Brady

Victoria is a Forensic Interview and is based out of our Hays office but travels wherever a family and kiddo needs services. She is also a Family and Child Advocate so when she is not doing interviews she is working with families and kiddos as an advocate.

Youth Advocate

David Koshiol

David is a single dad from Hays, who spent most of his youth in different foster care placements, boys homes, and other youth institutions. Amongst other professions, he went on to become the Lead Plumber of the award winning Auman Company. He is also an actor with the Hays Community Theater, where he has had such roles as Shrek and King Triton. David feels uniquely suited to work with the young men WKCAC interacts with, because of his own history in the system.
