Kathy Lussier

Director, Library Engagement, Marketing, and Professional Development

Kathy leads a team that is passionate about helping libraries reach readers and promote what they offer in creative and effective ways. They love making our customers’ jobs easier and getting them excited to use our products to solve their biggest challenges.

Prior to joining NoveList, Kathy worked as a television news producer, corporate communications director, and head of marketing and community relations for a large library system. She holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Texas and national accreditation from the Public Relations Society of America.    

Kathy's favorite book as a child was The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. She loved reading books aloud to her younger sister when they were kids. Today you'll find her reading stories that are character-driven and have a strong sense of place. When gardening or crafting, Kathy often has an audiobook or podcast playing in her ears. When she manages to sit still, she loves to binge-watch a good British crime drama with her husband.
