Hi, I'm Kathleen

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.
