Kathy was born in Grove City, PA. Her dad was a school teacher and her mother was an elementary school library assistant. She grew up Presbyterian and was active in her church in Northminster Presbyterian Church in New Castle PA. Kathy attended college at Maryville in TN and graduated from Westminster College in PA with a degree in Christian Education and Theology. During this time she met and married her husband Ron.
After many years as director of Christian Education in PA and Ohio with a return to Northminster, Kathy heard God’s call to ordained ministry and listened. Kathy attended Columbia Seminary in Decatur GA and then went to First Presbyterian Natchitoches, LA. Kathy has served as solo pastor there for 13 years.
Kathy has served in various governing bodies with many responsibilities, most recently as Commissioner to the General Assembly, Detroit.
God’s calling has long been an important part of her life and Kathy is excited and pleased that God has led her to Bayshore Presbyterian Church.
In her words” I believe God has a plan for us together – a plan continuing our journey together, learning how to be the Body of Christ for each other, the community , our world.”
