Kathryn was welcomed to Fenstermaker in 2016 to work with clients and assist in the development of GIS mapping software. Her grandfather founded the company in 1950. Kathryn excelled as Business Development Consultant, promoting Fenstermaker’s range of multi-disciplinary services by leading presentations, exhibits, and workshops, facilitating interdepartmental communication, and adoption of the company’s differentiating technology.
Working in her new capacity, Kathryn is now responsible for branding and marketing, special events coordination, advertising, and public relations for the firm. Her leadership abilities, recently enhanced by her graduation from Leadership Lafayette, will be instrumental, as she works closely with Human Resources, Business Development, and the Production Groups in order to develop strategies for effective internal and external communications.
By way of background, Kathryn is a graduate of Millsaps College, whose curriculum and writing focus led her to a flexibility of mind and knack for narrative. This liberal arts experience allowed Kathryn to hone her written communications skills and achieve a Bachelor of Arts in French. Following graduation, Kathryn sought her teaching certification from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and subsequently taught French for three years in the Lafayette Parish Public School System.
Kathryn’s passion for education and youth mentorship is now expressed through her involvement with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana and her pursuit of STEAM Lafayette.
