Kathleen is a graduate of Notre Dame of Maryland University. She has a B.A. in Communication Arts and over 25 years of professional experience in various industries. Her initial background was in large group insurance, but after working in the DC metro area for over 10 years, she decided to pursue a better quality of life and moved to Jackson, Wyoming where she enjoyed recreating in the Greater Yellowstone area. It is here she gained a deep appreciation for environmental issues that affect the ecosystem. In 2018, Kathleen and her family relocated to Naples, FL, an area they were already fond of, due to their love of fishing in the backcountry of the 10,000 Islands or the Lower Florida Keys. She looks forward to contributing her administrative experience to support EPIC’s commitment to the environment and the people of the islands they engage with.
