The Early Years

Reared in the Coachella Valley, Kathleen understands why so many are drawn here and the importance of planning thoughtfully for change.

Educated at Yale (B.A.) and U.C. Berkeley, Boalt Hall (J.D.), she settled in Northern California, becoming a "regular" in Palm Desert in 1978.

Kathleen purchased her current Palm Desert home in 1999, and joined our historic Shadow Mountain Golf Club. She is a key part of the team working to preserve this precious community resource.
