Meme Stokes Callnin
Joined Wonderbound 2016
Meme is new to the Wonderbound family this year and is super excited to be a part of such an amazing organization that gives so much to the community and to the individuals who are privileged to experience their magic. Meme began dancing at the age of 4 and continued with her love of dance through college. At that time she entered the corporate world and started her career journey. Thankfully in 2003, Meme’s daughter, Stevie, started ballet and gave Meme an avenue to reconnect to the dance she has always loved! Stevie started her ballet training with Sarah Tallman and this relationship led Meme to the doorstep and the beauty of Wonderbound.
Meme is the Denver Market Leader for Aon Hewitt, a global human resource consulting firm whose mission is empowering organizations and individuals to secure a better future through innovative human capital solutions. The experience Meme has gained throughout her career has helped her become adept at building strong partnerships with organizations, creating strong relationships, and mastering the art of networking. It is this skill that she looks to leverage to help bring an awareness of Wonderbound to a broader audience.
In 2013, Meme and Stevie (now a dance major at Denver School of the Arts) rounded out their family with her husband Sean and his four wonderful children Patrick, Matthieu, Bryce, and Sara. (Yes, a lopsided Brady bunch!) Meme loves hiking, cooking, good wine, music, travel and photography. However, top of the list is spending time her family and friends.
Meme has a Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in computer science from Winthrop University.
