In 2007 Kathy received the Staff Excellence Award for her outstanding service to the Pharmacology department.

Kathy was very well liked by students, faculty and staff.  She will be greatly missed. Kathy will be officially retired June 1. Her plans for the future? To spend more time with her grandchildren.  We wish her all the best.
