Kathy has been a part of the FRC staff for 23 years! Let’s get to know her better:
Tell us about your family:
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Myles, for 47 years. We have two daughters, two sons in law, and 5 grandchildren. Our oldest daughter, Jamie, works at Berry College. Our youngest daughter, Jennifer, is now in Heaven and we really miss her sweet smile and humorous personality; she worked in the medical field as a surgical technician. Our five grandchildren range in age from 17 - 25. Sam (17), our youngest grandson will be graduating from Chattooga High School this year. Olivia (18) is a freshman at Reinhardt University, studying art/literature and playing on the golf team. Hayden (20) is studying Biology at Brenau University and plans to go into the medical field. Gracie (21) works in customer service, and Hannah (25), is the drive-thru director at Chic-Fil-A in Rome. We are so proud of our grands! We have one great grandchild, Brice, who is 5 years old. We all live in Armuchee on Little Sand Mountain where my husband, Myles, serves as pastor of our little community church! We are actively involved in our church family and count it a privilege to be in such a wonderful place on the mountain!
Share an interesting fact about yourself.
I love to work in the yard!
What are your hobbies?
I really, really enjoy camping and the outdoors. I love to go tubing down the Toccoa River.
Why is what you do for the people you serve important to you?
Life is short. I believe we are put here on this earth for a purpose and it's up to us to find out what that purpose is and do it to the best of our ability. I find fulfillment in serving others; it makes me happy to see people succeed in life. If I can be a small part of the success of others, that makes me feel good about myself and my purpose in life.
What is one fact you wish everyone knew about the work you do each day?
You can find joy in doing the most insignificant tasks if you do them with the right attitude and consider the whole picture, not just your little piece of the puzzle. It's a team effort!
