Our Board and Staff
Ted Barrett – Chairman of the Board
Gary Evans – Vice Chair
Gary Lord – Secretary
Lynn Saul – Treasurer
Joe Adamcik – Board Member
Joe joined the Board in June 2017 but has been on the receiving side of Journey to Hope’s programming for quite some time. He has participated in LinkedIn SEO, Strengths Based Career Management, and the Job Search series — all of which helped him transition when his prior company moved their corporate office to Michigan. It was Joe’s love for the Greater Cincinnati community, however, that kept him here, and we couldn’t be happier to have him as part of our team. Joe has extensive senior management experience with comprehensive knowledge of manufacturing, operations, strategic planning, operational excellence, continuous improvement, and change management. Joe is Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certified, as well as Project Management Professional (PMP) certified, and he engages in extensive volunteer work as a member of the Knights of Columbus.

Stacie Wingfield – Board Member
As a strategic marketing executive, Stacie possesses an astute understanding of brand building and creative problem solving. After participating in a LinkedIn seminar at Journey to Hope, she was so appreciative and impressed that she made it her mission to get more involved. Her expertise and added input is valued as her Journey to Hope involvement has now become full circle. In addition to serving as a Board member, she volunteers with Scarlet Hope of Greater Cincinnati and serves as Logistics Team Lead at Grace Fellowship Church.
Diane Kinsella – Executive Director
Diane serves as Journey to Hope’s Executive Director and as a leader for many of our groups. She’s a Gallup-certified Strengths Performance Coach and an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and has helped people see and leverage their unique strengths for greater fulfillment in life — personally, professionally, and socially. Diane oversees and helps deliver a program of more than 20 support groups, coaching groups, seminars, and workshops for life’s transitions. She recruits, trains, and supports the corps of 75 volunteers who facilitate these groups. Her other responsibilities include program development, publicity, providing referrals, and offering seminars to the public. Diane earned a B.B.A. in Management from the University of Cincinnati and completed her Master of Arts at Mount St. Joseph as a “Distinguished Graduate Student” in May 2009. Her focus is in Religious Studies with an emphasis on Spiritual and Pastoral Care.
Mary Martin – Operations Coordinator
With a wealth of experience working with business leaders, local philanthropy groups, and media, Mary’s participation in various Journey to Hope programs inspired her to use her talents to help further the growth of JTH’s mission. Always drawn to helping people, she began her career in Donor Services for Cleveland’s Playhouse Square Foundation immediately after earning her bachelor’s degree in English from John Carroll University. Her achievements and love of corporate services led her to key roles in sales and marketing for Ritz-Carlton and Renaissance hotels, as well as corporate communications for KeyBank and Fidelity Investments. Mary lives in Cincinnati with her husband and children and devotes her time to faith development, community service efforts, and project work with Wyoming City Schools.
Brittany York – Marketing & Development Coordinator
Brittany joined Journey to Hope as a Charitable Words Senior Scholar and summer intern in 2016 and became a part-time member of our staff the following autumn. She’s a graduate of the University of Cincinnati where she earned her M.A. in Professional Writing & Editing as well as her certificate in journalism. Brittany is an adjunct English Composition Instructor, Charitable Words’ Project Manager, and the Editor of Soapbox Media’s “For Good” section.
