The Carroll University Alumnae Leadership Luncheon is an annual opportunity to reconnect, network, and celebrate the achievements of women. We’re proud to be a part of thousands of success stories, a pioneering tradition that continues today.

She was employed by the Dow Chemical Company in Michigan and Ohio for over 20 years - including 15 years in a variety of process, product and business development management assignments.

A 17-year career followed at CAS (a Division of the American Chemical Society). From 2006 until her retirement in 2014, Kathy served as a Director at CAS. Responsibilities included oversight of 400 internationally diverse, predominately Ph.D. scientists building chemical information databases searched by universities, corporations and patent offices; identification and assessment of process and content initiatives with the ACS (Journals) Publication Division; and evaluation and development of new business based on evolving CAS database content.

Kathy’s non profit volunteer experience has included serving the United Way of Franklin County Ohio (Allocations Committee, Education Vision Council, and Management Advisory Committee), as President of a 1250 member congregation, as President of the Foundation Board for the Columbus Ohio Rotary, and as a member of the Capital University Board of Trustees. The Trustee responsibilities over 12 years included chairing the Student Affairs Committee, and serving as Board Secretary, as a member of the Executive Committee, and as a member of the Presidential Search Committee.
