Rising Stars: Meet Kaleigh Thomas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kaleigh Thomas.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I was a middle school special education teacher for ten years but recently decided to leave the profession and stay home with my two young children. In February I hosted a bridal shower for my sister and put together a huge grazing table with one of my best friends. I quickly realized how much I loved creating beautiful spreads of food and after receiving a lot of positive feedback, Village Boards was created. It has been so rewarding to tap into my creative side and also utilize my love for design while creating custom boards and grazing tables for people to enjoy!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
As a former teacher, owning a small business is definitely new territory for me. I have learned so much over the past several months and am consistently blown away by the support I have received from the Kansas City small business community. Everyone is so willing to assist and empower one another which is an incredible thing to be a part of!

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am most proud of the fact that our boards and grazing tables are visually different than those created by any other charcuterie company in the Kansas City area. They are vibrant, eye-catching, and artfully curated, helping them to easily become a focal point at your event.

Another thing that distinguishes Village Boards from other companies in the area is the fact that we offer baked goods. This makes things so much easier for our customers who are looking to simplify the event planning process by decreasing the number of vendors they work with. We offer custom cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes, and cookies.
