Kathy grew up in the Twin Cities and was exposed to missions at an early age as her family regularly had missionaries stay at their home. This spawned an interest in the world and Kathy has traveled to most of the US states and to more than 30 countries around the world. Their family had au pairs from 9 different countries while their children were growing up. Traveling with family and experiencing other cultures has provided many wonderful memories.
After spending 25 years in the corporate world, Kathy felt God’s call to bring her talents to serve in the missions department at Wooddale where she enjoys seeing God at work every day around the world and helping to share these stories with Wooddalers.
Kathy and her husband Mike live in Eden Prairie and have three adult children, one of whom is a Wooddale Global Partner serving in Cyprus.
