Kathleen was raised in Brooklyn, NY, and is married with one son. Recently, she had a friend visiting the area and on Memorial Day weekend toured Battery Park, Wall Street near the NYSE, the World Trade Center Memorial, and 42nd Street. She said it was an amazing time and enabled her to see the city through a completely different lens.
Some of Kathleen’s favorite things to do include spending quality time with family and close friends, going on weekend getaways, and spending a day at the spa at least once a month. Her goal in life is to experience something new every day and truly make a difference in people’s lives. She also enjoys traveling and going on humanitarian (medical mission) trips and plays alto saxophone.
