Kathryn’s love of animals includes her furry friends Kidd, Eddie, and Rosie. Kidd has been Kathryn’s horse companion since high school, and he is a 20-year-old sweetie. The pair have been on the equestrian team, dabbled in polo, and competed in barrel racing. The other two faithful friends are Rosie the schnauzer poodle and Eddie, who Kathryn jokingly calls her Jack Russel “terrorist.”
Kathryn even started her own grooming business in July which she named Rosie’s Place. In addition to owning her own business, Kathryn also works at two different barns in Aiken and gives horseback riding lessons on occasion. Kathryn’s lively spirit shines through in all aspects of her life including her leisure activities: camping, going to the beach, hiking, construction, sewing, leather work, and anything to do with animals.
When asked what she finds most rewarding about volunteering with the SPCA Kathryn replies, “knowing that I’m changing lives and helping animals to live as good as they can until they find their forever home.”
Kathryn, you have most definitely influenced the lives of these homeless animals and made a positive impact on the people you work alongside. Thank you for your compassion and tireless volunteer efforts!
