Business, nonprofit and innovation leaders and thinkers — all with a heart for helping women become financially empowered.
After graduating from undergrad with a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism and Public Relations, she took a gap year and moved abroad to Madrid, Spain, where she studied the culture and taught English to third and fourth graders. There, she decided to form her career in the nonprofit world, focusing on marginalized communities, such as women and BIPOC.
After returning to the States, she began working with the Boys and Girls Club as a Marketing and Communications Manager. At the same time, she obtained her Master's Degree in digital marketing and data analytics. In her position with Women's Money Matters, she hopes to continue serving communities in need.
Outside of her professional work, you can find her at a concert (probably Harry Styles or Beyonce), catching the latest Marvel movie, or cuddling with her two cats!
Originally from Brooklyn, NY, she loves to travel and learn about other cultures. She holds a B.A in Spanish and a Masters in Social Work with a focus on Community Organizing. When not working, she loves to spend time with her family hiking, traveling, running or reading.
She holds a BA in journalism from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a MAT in teaching from American University, and a PhD in leadership and education from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Kathleen began her career as a sportswriter before finding a passion for teaching and coaching. She is an avid athlete who has completed more marathons than pull-ups.
A proud mother of five, and certified in Early Education and Care, she has been focused on promoting early childhood education and supporting the HeadStart program.
