Bella Boutique is 100% volunteer run. Our volunteer Board and Committees are comprised of smart, talented people with a passion for giving these students the same experiences they had. Meet them, below.

Katie Bio
Katie McDermott


Katie is originally from the Midwest and has been in the Denver Metro area for over 13 years. She is an Environmental, Health, and Safety Manager for a telecommunication company. Katie found Bella Boutique when she was looking for a place to donate formal dresses that would be put to good use. After volunteering during a homecoming season, she was enthusiastic about helping Bella Boutique any way possible. When she is not at work or at Bella, she spends her free time hanging out with her sweet puppy, Harley Jane, and hiking.

Sally Shaughnessy

VP, Operations

Sally came to Bella Boutique through her volunteering with the Junior League of Denver and very quickly decided to apply her professional skills to help grow the organization. Sally is an East Coast transplant working as a project manager in the marketing and technology space. She believes in improving communities through service and is incredibly passionate about helping families overcome financial struggles to allow their kids to simply be kids and celebrate these important school milestones. 

Kayla Bio
Kayla Dreyer

VP, Grants/Legal

Kayla is a Denver transplant who spent the majority of her life on the South Texas border, and as a result loves Tex-Mex and saw Selena Quintanilla Perez in concert when she was 11 years old. She began volunteering with Bella Boutique through the Junior League of Denver, and kept giving her time and energy to Bella Boutique because she thinks it’s an awesome organization and has a lot of fun being a personal shopper. When not working to promote Bella Boutique’s mission, she serves in leadership roles for various non-profit and professional organizations in Colorado and gets to litigate employment matters throughout the United States (with a specific emphasis on trade secret theft and executive transitions). An interesting fact about Kayla is that she was the chair of both her high school’s prom and college’s homecoming committees.

Imani Bio
Imani Williams

VP, Program/Boutique Management

Imani is a Colorado native that has a passion for helping others. She is a doula and owns her own business, Birth in Black, which was created to help address Black maternal mortality rates.  She likes to spends her free time enjoying Colorado’s many sunny days with her dog, Cooper.

Imani first volunteered with Bella Boutique in the spring of 2020 and fell in love with everything Bella stands for. She is eager and excited to now work alongside the group of incredible women that make up the Bella Boutique team.

Beth Billingsley

VP, Marketing & Public Relations

Beth is a consultant in the digital advertising industry with a passion for helping others and improving her community.  In addition to working with Bella Boutique, Beth is an active member of the Junior League of Denver and has volunteered with the Denver Young Professionals Alzheimer’s Association. She was drawn to Bella Boutique because of the ability to work with the future of Denver – the females! Being from a small town in Texas, Beth herself went to 5 proms, so she brings an almost expert opinion on how to find the right look for every girl who comes in our doors.

Starr is a true Southern belle with a creative flair. Starr is the force that keeps our boutique beautiful, bright and happy -- on top of all the other ways she helps the students and Bella team. She learned about Bella Boutique through her affiliation with the Junior League of Denver and once Starr started working with Tia and the students, she was hooked. Starr came to Denver by way of Virginia and Louisiana and is mom to the wonderful Cassidy, another familiar face and volunteer in the shop.
