Kathy has been practicing Insight Meditation at NYIMC since 2010. She started volunteering early on and often speaks of how her volunteer work is what has made NYI her spiritual home and community. With 40 years of experience working in theater as well as 37 years as a Director of Recreation, Volunteers and Spiritual Care in Long Term Care Nursing Homes she brings a wide array of experience in planning and managing a variety of successful special events, theater/performance projects and fundraisers. Kathy’s practice at NYIMC has led her to be ordained as an Interfaith Minister as well as opened up the journey towards Chaplaincy work with the elder community.

“Just as a mother would protect her only child with her life, even so let one cultivate a boundless love towards all beings.”
