Upon graduating from college, Kathy settled in Charlotte, NC, where she started a family, and eventually obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Queens Presbyterian School of Nursing, graduating with high honors. She practiced for years as a respected oncology nurse. She was active in the Junior League of Charlotte, and a frequent volunteer at her children’s schools.
