Kathie shared, “One of the life lessons my mother taught me was to be thankful for even the smallest things. This has helped me cultivate a thankful heart and to live with an appreciation for life even in difficult times.”
Kathie loves working in her flower gardens, caring for her two cats Jackson and Chester, and being a Nana to her five grandchildren. One of her simple summertime pleasures is taking an outdoor break with a tall glass of lemonade and a good mystery. She also enjoys riding the motorcycle with her husband Chuck and is always ready for another big adventure.
