Kathy grew up in Southern California and discovered SLO in college. She graduated from Cal Poly with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition, and then from the University of Washington with an MS degree in the same field. She later enjoyed working with children and their families in an outpatient clinic for pediatric metabolic disorders in Seattle.

Kathy was blessed to stay home for 13 years raising her three children and filled her time with volunteer work in both dietetics and her children’s classrooms. When she decided to return to work, she discovered she enjoyed working with students with learning differences in K-8.

After 28 years, Kathy is thrilled to be back home on the Central Coast! Her mixed experiences brought her to the DRC, where she is excited to be working with such a fantastic team, helping students reach their goals.
