Steps to Success Coordinator
Kathy began her career in systems analysis for Aetna Health Plans after earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Providing leadership to user communities, integrating business requirements into information systems design, and developing system usability testing were integral parts of her early career. She channeled her experience in these areas into a role at Partners Healthcare where she focused on cultivating strong relationships across many groups of people to optimize system accessibility to physicians and patients.
Over time, she shifted her focus to mentoring in the community, leading small groups, and building relationships among diverse groups of people. She first came to Family Promise as a volunteer in our Day Center in 2017 and joined our staff team in 2019 as the Volunteer Program Assistant, working closely with congregation coordinators and community volunteers. In 2021 she transitioned to managing the intake line while also implementing financial literacy and tenancy classes. She transitioned to Steps to Success Coordinator in 2022, focusing on helping families advance their education, increase employability, develop life skills, and enhance resilience. She is passionate about making a difference in the lives of others by helping them to shift their trajectories, experience hope, and ultimately thrive.
