Nicole Underwood
Executive Director

I was hired to lead KidsWork Children’s Museum in August 2017. As Executive Director of the museum, I’m the caretaker of our mission. Leading a non-profit organization requires I wear many different hats. A few of my responsibilities include inspiring and managing staff and volunteers, program development and writing grants. Also, community outreach and building partnerships that further the mission. More importantly, my focus is to create an environment of learning through interactive experiences for all our members and guests. Prior to joining KidsWork, I worked in New York City as an Account Manager at InterActive Corp., a leading media and Internet company. I also worked in Chicago at Ameritech in their International Carrier Relations group. I love living and working in Frankfort, it sure beats living in 375 sq. ft. in NYC! I'm the co-leader of my youngest daughter's Girl Scout troop. I enjoy traveling with my husband and two adventurous daughters. In my free time I like to be on the water, and read cooking and interior design books.



Maribeth Hallahan
Visitor Services Manager

I have enjoyed working at KidsWork for the last three years. I enjoy seeing the smiles on the kids, and hear them laughing when they are having fun here.  Because I have been here for this long, it has been fun to get to know the parents and see how much their children have changed and watch them grow over this time. 
In my spare time I love to do yoga, travel, listen to music and going to concerts, go on hikes, walk around my neighborhood and trails in the area, (and borrow my neighbor’s dogs when I do!) I adore all animals and I especially like to help my family and friends by dog sitting.
