Kathryn was born in Newfoundland, raised in Ottawa and is now a proud stay at home mom raising her four children in Bishops Mills. For several years now Katy has been involved in her children’s school, she is the chair of Holy Cross School Council and serves on the CDSBEO Parent Involvement Committee.
