    Ryan Hendricks

    Food and Beverage Manager

    Ryan was born and raised in the Madison area and has played soccer at Keva for over 10 years. He enjoys playing all sports but his favorites include soccer, tennis, and ultimate frisbee. When Ryan is not playing sports or working at Keva, he is often found playing strategy games with friends and family or taking on new hobbies. A man of logic and reason, he is balanced out by his fun-loving wife Emily.

    Prior to Keva, Ryan managed inventory for a well-known retail company. He is loyal and determined to a fault and will not stop until both himself and Keva are the best they can be.

    Lici Mixson

    Youth Volleyball Manager

    Lici Mixson is new to the Keva team this year, she was born and raised in the midwest, but she has lived in four different states including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, and North Carolina. Lici started playing volleyball in middle school and has been playing volleyball for about 10 years now, which has given her the opportunity to travel to some amazing places including The Netherlands (where she had the best croissant of her entire life), Germany, and Austria!! Lici has two older sisters, who are her favorite people in the entire world. When she’s not playing volleyball she enjoys thrift shopping, binge watching tv shows and movies, reading, and tacos in any way shape and form. She loves getting to know new people and spending as much time in the sun as possible, especially at the beach or lake.

    Lici hopes in her time at Keva that she can help others grow a passion for volleyball and a love for sports! Sports are a great way to learn valuable life skills and meet amazing people and she can’t wait to take on that journey with the amazing people at Keva!

    Nathaniel Corkery

    Court Manager

    Joining our team this Fall is Nathaniel.  Raised in Madison, Nathaniel has always had a love for sports and grew up playing basketball and other sports. He is a die hard Wisconsin sports fan, cheering on the Badgers, Packers, and Bucks. When he’s not watching a game, Nate can be found playing games, exploring with his dog, Roxy, or finding the latest sneakers to add to his collection.
    Nate has a passion for connecting with and helping others as he has in years of work centered around mental health. He is ecstatic to be entering a profession where he can combine both passions and join the community of Keva Sports.  Please help us welcome Nathaniel to his first year at KEVA.

    Katie McKenna

    Events Coordinator

    Katie comes from the uncontested Greatest State of All Time*, Illinois. She joined KEVA six years ago when she worked Front Desk and Food and Beverage as a part-time second job, but recently, claimed a full-time desk and just hasn’t left. Katie’s passions include watching Jeopardy, riding one of her many Trek bikes, daily Wordle domination, reading, her dog Champion, and telling anyone who’ll listen (so far not many stick around the whole rant) on how the Gateway Arch being considered a National Park is absolutely criminal. She has an MA in Library and Information Sciences from UW Madison (Go Badgers!), as well as extensive experience in a variety of customer service settings. Katie is dedicated to optimizing the operational efficiency of KEVA, which in return, will provide the best experience for every KEVA member. Katie has an eye for detail and is having a blast working on providing the best experience possible for events.
