Kathy retired from the Seminole County Health Department on Aug. 1, 2020, after 41 years of service to the Oklahoma Health Department serving mostly in Pottawatomie County and the last 10 years in Seminole. She was appointed to the Oklahoma Disaster Relief Program allowing her the opportunity to help others, not only in Oklahoma but all across the U.S. She proudly served in this position for 10 plus years.
