Originally from the “Mitten State,” Ryan Klaver and his wife, Kayla, made their way to Franklin, Tennessee, after a five-year stint in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Graduating from Taylor University in 2010 with a degree in Media Communication, Ryan developed a love for the art of storytelling and a desire to use stories for an eternal impact. When God unexpectedly opened the doors at Show Hope, Ryan and Kayla knew this was not only a new adventure but an opportunity to advocate for waiting children. As the Manager of Communications and Creative Services, Ryan looks forward to using photography, graphic design, and storytelling to affirm the dignity of the little lives entrusted to the care of Show Hope. When not in the office, Ryan can be found getting his daily dose of endorphins on a long trail run or with Kayla, exploring the mountains and rivers and all the beautiful things Tennessee has to offer.
