What is the favorite thing about your current job?
I find being an entrepreneur and business owner very fulfilling. Most of our clients are entrepreneurs and it is gratifying to be connecting with them to understand their specific needs and then negotiate on their behalf.
Where are you from originally?
As a daughter of an officer in the Air Force, I moved every few years, however, most of my formative years were high school and college (OSU) in Columbus, OH.
What are the top 3 reasons you enjoy the Beverly Hills business community?
Being part of this business community and serving on the Chamber Board is a natural step. Our family has lived and worked in Beverly Hills for over 30 years. Both of our daughters went through the Beverly Hills school system. We were active in the local parks and recreational programs as well as AYSO soccer. Our schools, Police and Fire Departments are the best in the nation.
When did you join the Board?
Kathleen has been an active member of the Chamber for many years and most recently joined the Board of Directors in 2015. In 2017 she became the Chairwoman of the Chamber’s Innovation Committee.
What is your favorite Chamber event?
Beverly Hills Tomorrow is my favorite Chamber event. The talented and diverse speakers deliver cutting edge information that we can often immediately make use of. With that said, there are a number of events that come in as a close 2nd.
What is one piece of advice you would give new Chamber members?
Get involved to the biggest extent you are able. The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce offers the opportunity to learn from and work with some key power players you wouldn’t typically have easy access to.
When you aren’t working for your company or the Chamber, what are your favorite pastimes?
When I am not working for my company or the Chamber, my favorite pastimes are hiking with my husband, Geoffrey, our standard poodle, Nico, enjoying time with our daughters & friends, traveling, theatre, skiing, yoga, gardening and reading.
