Angela Wright, Board Member (2022-2023)

Angela learned about mental illness from a very young age, growing up with her mother who suffered from schizophrenia. Angela developed a deep passion for mental health and her mission was to ensure that those who are suffering can get the help they need – to change their life.

She believed that “having someone that we feel safe enough to talk to and be fully transparent with can bring such intense healing”. This belief is why she felt so strongly about the mission of HopeNet.

Angela was born and raised in Wichita. She was the proud mother of three boys, Keaton, Brecken, and Croix., and was happily married to Don Wright. Angela, Don, and their boys loved to travel and spend time at the lake together.

Angela was a certified Health Coach, Group Fitness Instructor at the YMCA, and owner of Answer Advantage. Angela was a firm believer in the power of prayer and positive thinking!

Angela, beloved wife, mother, and community leader, passed away on October 2, 2023. You can read more about her extraordinary life here.
