Kath was born in Ohio, and grew up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Kath returned with her family to the US to attend college at Pennsylvania State University. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, she began her career in the Navy at the Philadelphia Naval base. Kath and her husband, Doug, have 3 adult children, 7 grandsons, 1 granddaughter, and 1 great-grandson, that occupy a great deal of their time and love. Following a career in Nursing, Kath joined the staff at the former First Baptist Church of Gaithersburg in 2002 as the Music and Worship Assistant. Following the church merger, and the beginning of Pathways Baptist Church, Kath is the only staff member who was not hired by Pathways but was inherited. She currently serves as the Worship and Music Assistant, the Website Coordinator, and the Communications Assistant. Kath enjoys ringing handbells, and Community Bible Study. Following Kath's 20th Anniversary on staff, she continues to enjoy the ministry God has blessed her with. Coming to work each day is an exciting new opportunity.
