    Katy Vinson

    License Number: 2021016818

    Born and raised in southern Kansas City, I learned the values of hard work and treating others like family from a young age. My journey began in my father’s auto body repair shop, where his mentality of respecting both customers and employees shaped my approach to life. I’m a firm believer in living by the motto of “Treat others the way you’d like to be treated” – a principle that’s guided me in both my personal and professional life. I have four wonderful, but ornery, children and two dogs. Family remains at the core of everything I do. When we aren’t at kid activities, we love vacationing in South Carolina, having movie nights, weekly family dinners, and being outdoors.
