Kathryn is also part of the Pastoral Care and Counseling Department at Alamance Regional Medical center in Burlington, NC where she counsels employees and cancer patients. Rounding out her vocational trifecta is a private practice in which she enjoys working with adolescents and adults on a range of issues that get in the way of Abundant Life. Kathryn’s highest calling is wife/mom/stepmom to a blended and kaleidoscopic family, as well as shepherdess to two miniature long-haired dachshunds.
