Favorite part about working for BBBS: Collaborating with diverse individuals from our staff, our various community partners, as well as our BBBS committees and knowing that we are making a positive difference in the lives of children in our community.

Fun fact about you: I experienced an amazing swim with the sharks, turtles, eagle rays, and other tropical fish in the Living Seas Aquarium at Disney World.

Words I live by: “When we cast our bread upon the waters, we can presume that someone downstream whose face we may never see will benefit from our action, even as we enjoy the gifts sent to us from a donor upstream.” ~ Maya Angelou

Thanks, Kathy, for changing lives with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
