Hi, I'm Kathleen
Learn more about me in the news
I was born and raised in Michigan, where my family was and is committed to public service. I earned a BS in Psychology and Marketing, Teacher Certification for English Education, and a MA in Education Leadership. My husband, Bryan, and I are the proud parents of Joshua, Sarah and Michael. We raised our family in northern Illinois where I was a public high school English teacher. We moved to Clearwater in 2016.
I am a Guardian ad Litem with the Pinellas County Courts, where I am the voice/advocate for children who have been removed from the home due to abuse or neglect.
I currently serve on the following boards / councils:
Tampa Bay Estuary Program Board Policy Board
Vice-President of the Suncoast League of Cities
Chair of the Pinellas County Continuum of Care
Leadership Board of Thrive by Five
Barrier Islands Government Council (The Big “C”)
Clearwater Affordable Housing Advisory Committee
Pinellas Opioid Abatement Funding Advisory Board
These all represent passions of mine: advocating for Clearwater residents and neighborhoods, our environment, small businesses, housing solutions, and driving down costs for city operations, businesses, and residents.
I am proud and honored to serve on our Clearwater City Council. I have been committed and determined to raise the bar on what it means to be your elected representative. I hope you’ll reach out to me to share your ideas and concerns.
