Leadership

Kathryn  Jerrard – 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.

Nicole Beus Harris - First Vice President

 

Growing up on the west coast and having spent time in Illinois before moving to Maryland – she has never lived in a red state, but because of that she’s learned a lot of tips and techniques to deal with being the underdog in a debate and race.

Her background consists of having worked for a Fortune 100 company and managing the administrative staff of 7 offices in 2 states, direct sales with a major cosmetics company, to her childhood dream of law enforcement. For the past 12 years she has used her college education in graphic design to help small businesses with their branding and marketing needs. In 2011 she branched out and started branding and marketing conservative candidates in local, state, and federal races in Maryland. Politics and her marketing training were a perfect match for her.

In 2014 she was a key figure for the big wins in Legislative District 6 which had been completely democrat held for 77 years prior. In addition to being Vice-President of RWBC, she is the Maryland State Precinct Captain Coordinator for the Maryland GOP.

During the 2014 campaigns she met her husband Andy Harris, who is the current Congressman from Maryland’s 1st Congressional District. Nicole is also the mother of 1, step-mother of 5, and step-grandmother to 7.

Jolie McShane - Second Vice President

 

Jolie enthusiastically joined RWBC after discovering the like minded women and fun club activities. Women on Target, educational monthly meetings, meeting upcoming politicians, sign waving and even as a "voice" on a radio advertisement drew her into the folds of the club. 

A resident of Baltimore County for 30 years, Jolie runs her own business Vesta Construction Websites specializing in website and social media development for the heavy construction industry. Specializing in oil, gas and electric transmission construction, she has assisted large to smaller construction companies improve their website presence. 

She looks forward to working with new club members to become involved in RWBC.

Eleanor Huber - Recording Secretary 

 

A resident of Baltimore County over the past 20 years happily married with two children and blessed with 2 grandsons. 

 

Eleanor has a BA in Biology from Notre Dame of Maryland University.  She spent 25 years with the Maryland State Highway Administration as a real estate Review Appraiser and then as Federal Legislative Manager in the agency’s Policy division.  She holds a Certified General Appraisal Certification and is currently with the Robinson Appraisal Group LLC in Fallston. As a member of RWBC, she has thoroughly enjoyed her membership.
