Kathy started her highland dance experience in Winnipeg at the age of four, enjoying instruction from Gloria Fenny, Irene Baird and Donna Cove Cram. She felt fortunate to compete throughout North America and Scotland, and for several years, represented Manitoba at the Canadian Inter-Provincial Championships. She continues to occasionally perform with the Ena Sutton Highland Dancers of Winnipeg. Kathy began teaching Highland at the age of 17, and continues to run her own dance school as well as holding positions with ScotDance Manitoba, the Winnipeg Scottish Festival Highland Dance Committee and the Manitoba Highland Dancers’ Association.  Outside of dance, Kathy is a nurse clinician on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, and the mother of two daughters, Stephanie and Erika.
