Meet the Owner


Heather and Jimmy Walker - - Northland & North Kansas City, MO


Heather and Jimmy Walker want to create a sense of community and camaraderie with their  TWO Kid’s Closet Connection franchises. The Walkers are life-long residents of the Kansas City area: Jimmy is a Battalion Chief for the Kansas City, Mo., Fire Department, where he has worked since 1995, and Heather is a Curriculum Specialist and has worked in educational field since 1999. The Walkers have a blended family of three children, and actively include them in the sales as much as possible.


“By setting this entrepreneurial example, we hope our children will have a good understanding of what a dollar can do,” Heather says. “We also want them to learn to be good stewards of the earth and resources.”


Even though the Walkers didn’t become Kid’s Closet Connection franchise owners until 2014, they have been a part of the Kid’s Closet Connection family since 2010 as both sellers and shoppers. ‚ÄčKid’s Closet Connection has been a place where the Walkers have made friends with other parents and they look forward to meeting even more new families as franchise owners.
