Kathy was born in Victoria and is an Island girl at heart. She has experience as a teacher and administrator in the field of health education and has worked in both the public school system in BC and in community health in Oregon.
When Kathy’s husband became ill, her role changed to family caregiver. The concern and support from the Family Caregivers Support Society and others in similar circumstances was a revelation and marked a turning point in her life.
Her caring spirit, love of the great outdoors and art/photography, and her commitment to Cowichan Family Caregivers Support Society has sustained her through her changed and challenging life as a caregiver.
In her role as Administration and Education Facilitator, Kathy reaches out to others by finding answers to their questions, providing educational opportunities, and keeping the lines of communication open. “We all do a little of everything, it is a joy to be part of such a wonderful team.”
