Kathleen grew up on a farm in rural Michigan. Her family has always shown dedication to public service - her grandmother volunteered at her church and her great-grandfather was the Mayor of Grosse Pointe Woods. Her parents were always available to help community members in need. Kathleen learned the importance of giving back to the community at a young age, and is looking foward to giving more of her time and expertise to her beloved Town of Tiburon.
