Prior to founding Fargo Mom, Kathy worked in marketing and communications in various settings before making a career switch to be a social worker. In this role, she has worked in community and family services and a homeless shelter.

Kathy spends her days working from home and learning to balance life as a work-at-home mom to three busy kiddos.
