Kathy T. Heustess, MSW, LISW-CP
As a little girl in Washington Court House, Ohio, Kathy envisioned a future as a nurse...or maybe a ballerina. It wasn't until later that her true calling became clear: "When I was in seminary, people always came to my room to talk. I found that being present alongside people in their most vulnerable times was a tremendous privilege. I was smitten by the experience and it continues to be my passion." Today, Kathy's career as an Executive Director and Pastoral Counselor continues to be the most challenging and rewarding jobs she has ever had. Kathy is married to Bill, a native South Carolinian and United Methodist pastor. They have two children, John Philip and Bethany. Kathy enjoys playing the piano, decorating magazines, and college football.
