Kathy is a native Oregonian. She graduated with a BA in interior design from Western Washington University. She worked as a decorator for 28 years and co-owned two small businesses with her husband Chris. She is now retired and fills her time doing stained glass mosaic, traveling, and sharing time with her kids and grandkids. She has been volunteering at the CHAP studio and at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital since 2016. She was drawn to CHAP by her love of children and her love of art. She feels she receives as much healing love, art therapy, and smiles as she gives in her work at CHAP.
