Winifred works for a local design firm and some of her hobbies include biking, gardening, and bar tending. In 2012 she was recognized as one of the 100 People Who Make Life Better in Kansas City by KC Magazine. She rents a one-of-a-kind home in the Rosedale neighborhood of Kansas City, KS that dates to the 1920s. Winifred believes preservation is important because it serves as a record of the past. When we lose that record, we lose the memory of the object’s significance, and lose the ability to accurately and correctly project our efforts to the future and to progress as a society.


Q: Why do you think preservation is important?


A: Preservation is actually necessary for progress and forward thinking. It reminds us who we are and where we came from, and where we need to go next.
