As the first woman to lead one of the largest charitable organizations in the world, Kathy worked to provide job retraining, mortgage assistance, food and healthcare for people thrown out of work by the Great Recession. She has worked to provide school readiness programs for underprivileged children, make college more affordable for local high school students, and to help retired North Carolinians live with dignity. Kathy has also worked tirelessly to spur economic development in Greensboro so our area could attract new businesses that will provide the good paying jobs we need.
When a chronic illness struck one of her daughters, Kathy experienced firsthand the frustration of fighting with big insurance companies and confronting outrageous drug prices, as well as the reality that having a pre-existing condition could prevent her daughter from getting insurance in the future.
As a representative, Kathy will put partisan politics aside, country first, and bring her record of getting things done to a broken Washington. She knows that creating opportunity requires good paying jobs, affordable and accessible health care, and the education and training necessary to prepare people for tomorrow’s economy.
She’s spent her life bringing people together to make our community a better place for all, and now Kathy is ready to take her skills and determination to Washington to fight for hard-working Americans and for our country.
