My name is Ryane Delka. First and foremost, I am a mom to three incredible kiddos. They’ve taught me to enjoy the little things and to live a life filled with joy. I believe in kindness, creativity and the power of a smile.
I find satisfaction in giving back to our community, and I’m honored to be a board member for Tour de BBQ, an annual bike tour around Kansas City. Proceeds from this event support young adult survivors of pediatric cancer through the Midwest Cancer Alliance’s Transitions Clinic. I’m also a board member for the Silpada Foundation. Because of this foundation, we are able to support Living Beyond Breast Cancer and JDRF, and also award grants to charities across North America.
In July 2013, I became Co-President of Silpada Designs. I’ve been with the company since its inception 16 years ago, and I’ve watched it grow into an incredible business still grounded in its original purpose: empowering women to live their best life possible!
Prior to my current position, I worked as the first Field Trainer and the Vice President of Sales Development and Training for Silpada Designs. I was also Co-Owner of Delka Designs, my husband’s custom décor company. Through Delka Designs we supported a variety of worthwhile causes, including KVC Health Systems, Cristo Rey’s Dancing with the Stars and Tour de BBQ.
My introduction to the students at Cristo Rey came a few years ago when I had the privilege of speaking to a jewelry design class. Their enthusiasm for life was evident, and their positive energy was contagious. Their passion is my inspiration, and I will lace up my dancin’ shoes to support this vital community resource. Wish me luck!
Ryane will dance with Jesse Lopez of Allegro Ballroom.
