TiWanna Kenney or TK faithfully serves nonprofits and organizations as a high energy, no-nonsense community builder. This do-gooder is in the business of raising critical funds while bursting stereotypes and stigma. As the first African American woman (and currently only 1 of 3) to hold a Benefit Auction Specialist (BAS) designation from the National Auction Association, TK has been changing the face of the auctioneering industry since 2015 – literally.
TK attended the University of Oklahoma, is an auctioneering graduate of McLennan Community College, a small business owner. TK grew up in a military family and was living in Germany when the Berlin Wall fell. She credits this momentous historical event with her burning desire for justice and equality. TK is a former Army reservist herself who, like so many others, was called to active duty after 9/11. Thank you for your service, TK.
A bilingual (English/Spanish) nationally renowned speaker, TK regularly presents on leadership, empowerment, diversity and development. She also teaches auctioneering at her alma mater.
When not busy changing the world, TK loves travel, culture and food (she even chooses vacation destinations throughout the world based on whether they offer Michelin-starred restaurants to enjoy!). One can often find her reading, cooking or volunteering.
Do more good and join us at TK’s next big event!
