A champion of LibraryAware while a customer, Kathy jumped at the opportunity to join our team in 2015. Kathy is ready to help you integrate your library's strategies into LibraryAware for maximum results. From her first job as a TV news producer to her most recent position heading up the marketing and community relations efforts for the Jacksonville Public Library, finding the most impactful way to communicate has been her passion. She was recognized for a marketing strategy that won her library the Urban Libraries Council's 2015 Top Innovator Award in Customer Experience.
With a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin, Kathy is accredited in public relations by the Public Relations Society of America. When she’s not telling other people’s stories, she’s reading them, favoring biographies, historical fiction, and non-fiction about writing, art, and creativity. She enjoys any kind of paper crafting, trying new restaurants with her husband, and endlessly trying to teach their dog, Napoleon, how to fetch.
