Student Organization Service Center Manager
Kathi joined the Office of Student Life at Grand Valley State University in 2013 after retiring from a successful career in K-12 education. She worked in Big Rapids and Northview School systems in the areas of work experience, career exploration, and at-risk students. Her current responsibilities at Grand Valley State University include supervising the student assistants working at the front desk of the office and assisting with a variety of different projects supporting the full-time staff in the office. Her greatest joy throughout her career has been working directly with students and she feels very fortunate that this role enables her to continue to mentor the students she works with and comes in contact with on a daily basis at Grand Valley.
Outside of work, Kathi enjoys walking, cooking, shopping, travel and spending time with her three granddaughters.
