She stepped up to the plate to help lead an organization that has many award-winning artists in Santa Clarita many who have worked for the entertainment industry as well. Kathy’s main goal is to support and lift organizations, businesses by helping them move forward in the formation of the creative side of their business, artistic- self or cause. Therefore, when Kathy was approached by Santa Clarita International Film Festival (SCIFF) to serve on the advisory committee with SCIFF she said yes. She saw an opportunity to partner two organizations to bring creativity to the Santa Clarita community.
