We’re continuing our series of updates from staff members since they began working from home last spring. This month, get to know foundation Operations Manager Kate Herron. 

2020 was a challenging year for all of us. My partner Brian and I tried to make the best of it by staying busy. We took several trips on the motorcycle.

We headed up to Amish country a few times; we also took a quick trip to Door County (all with masks in tow, of course). On one of our excursions, we came across a family of black bears … up close and personal!

I spent a lot of time gardening. The tomatoes were a huge hit this year. Brian built a “catio” for our rescue kitties as well. They love watching the albino squirrels that live in our tree. 

Hiking, reading and meditating helped me stay balanced during all of the chaos.
