Staff Spotlight – December 2019
Kathi, along with her Mail Services team, supports the students, families and campus community with shipping, receiving and delivery needs. This includes reporting, billing, operational and logistical oversight. With 19 years total at the college, Kathi has enjoyed 16 of those in Mail Services. She and her husband Demas have two sons, Jacob, an E-town 2016 graduate, and James, a current senior here. The family owns an 18-acre farm just two miles from the college and have raised turkeys and chickens. To relax, she loves to sit on their deck in her anti-gravity chair with a cup of tea or coffee and watch the butterflies fly and the flowers bloom. Born and raised in Miami Shores, Florida, Kathi met her husband (an E-town native) while acting opposite one another in Romeo and Juliet. Since meeting, they have lived in Manhattan, Tioga County near the Grand Canyon of PA and have traveled the country on theater tours. If she could muster up the nerve, she would love to try hang gliding.
