Biography

While Kathryn began in the corporate environment in a training and communications capacity, she has spent most of her career working with or teaching students. She began this part of her journey as a high school English teacher and was privileged to work with students from grades 9-12 for almost 20 years. She transitioned into a position as a Transfer Counselor at Metropolitan State University of Denver after moving to Colorado from Georgia. This allowed her to continue engaging with students and helping them effectively access and navigate a variety of academic pathways to achieve their goals.

Territory / Population Kathryn works with

I work with students who are participating in one of ACC’s healthcare pathways. This includes both new and transfer students.

What town do you call home?

I now call Littleton home after growing up in the metropolitan Atlanta area.

Have you ever taken a class or received a degree from a community college?

I have not taken classes at a community college, but I did work closely with several community colleges and their students in the Denver area in my work at MSU Denver as a Transfer Counselor. This provided me with the opportunity to see first-hand why community colleges are so valuable to our community. I believe in educational access at an affordable price.

A little something about Kathryn

I love to camp and hike and explore the beauty of Colorado. I also enjoy attending concerts, especially at Red Rocks.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and who would you take with you?

I would go to New Zealand with my son. A huge aspiration of mine is to hike the Milford Track.

Favorite dish or type of food to eat

I love fresh vegetables from the garden, especially a good home-grown tomato. I love the way old-style southern cooks prepare fresh vegetables and a holiday meal.

Quote or advice for community college students

I defer to my favorite poet Mary Oliver, who says, “Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.”
