Despite being New Jersey born and raised, Kathy began her career in homeless services in California where she travelled across the country to embark on a year of volunteer service. Since moving back to the East Coast in 1996, she has focused her energies on the public housing sector, initially working in property management but quickly moving into planning and redevelopment. During her 15-year tenure with the Boston Housing Authority, Kathy worked on four major mixed-finance redevelopments. In addition to program management, she was responsible for designing and implementing human capital development initiatives and relocation plans and programs.
Today, Kathy relishes the opportunity to travel further afield, sharing her expertise in housing and neighborhood revitalization; Choice Neighborhoods planning and program management; human capital development and relocation with communities around the country to improve their housing options and the quality of life available to their residents.
As time permits, Kathy also enjoys feeding her more creative impulses by continually developing her metalsmithing skills - hand-fabricating jewelry from precious metals and stones
