Kathryn Jerrard – Past President
Kathryn was born in Brooklyn N.Y. She’s been married to her husband David for 30 years. They have two wonderful children and a German Sheppard, that she adores spending time with.
Work & Career: She discovered Nerium International and became a small business owner and has never been happier.
Interests: She enjoys animals, and in particular, dogs. She finds it exhilarating to travel to new places and exploring new countries and cultures. She enjoys cooking, gardening, supporting her church and their programs, reading and involvement with book clubs, sports, physical activities, bicycling and hiking.
Kathryn joined the RWBC after attending a few meetings. It was clear that RWBC was filled with strong minded, hard working women who are eager for change in Maryland. Feeling frustrated by hard left democratic leadership in our country and especially in Maryland, it was an easy choice for her to become involved with the RWBC. Fun loving, determined, hard working women, forming a camaraderie while shedding light on the reforms needed to create a better state. She feels blessed to have met such a loving, caring group of women and men that share a mutual trust and friendship and who come together to make a real difference in Maryland.
