Early in life, Kathy worked at Holt Brothers in Stockton and then went on to work at Guild Winery as a line worker. Kathy worked at the winery for two decades and left there as a Foreman.

Kathy enjoyed spending time gardening, sewing, relaxing at Seacliff Beach and fishing in Kodiak, Alaska. Kathy and her husband became involved in square dancing in the late 90's.
